Details from the historic survey for this ca. 1820 (per the survey) Walker Mountain Road house and other structures on the farm can be found at the link above.  A photo of the barns can be found in the Barns collection in the McLellan Barns entry.  Below is a photo taken in 2018.

The family that has owned this property for several generations has indicated the home was built ca. 1790.  John Learned (1780 - 1859) was in Clarendon by 1800.  It is certainly possible that the home was built as early as 1800 for John Learned but if built by 1790 there would have been another family living there prior to the Learneds.  John's 1st wife was Sarah Hills (1765 - 1842) and his 2nd Mary Gleason (1794 - 1858).  This property was still owned by the Learned family at the time of the 1869 map compilation, and likely until at least 1887 when John & Sarah's son John (1811 - 1887) passed.
