We do not know who built this ca. 1810 Hier Rd house.  At the time of the 1869 map compilation it was noted as being the A.W. Wescott property.  Amos Wescott (1809-1884) and his wife Sophina (Greene) Wescott (1811-1884) lived around the corner on Walker Mountain Rd (see Wescott House in this collection).  We do not know what Amos' middle name was but presuming it began with W., it should be noted that the mapmaker recorded his other home as A. Wescott vs this one A.W. Wescott.  The only other A. Wescott in Clarendon at the time was Arunah Greene Wescott (1835-1906), son of Amos and Sophina.  Arunah was living with his parents at the time of the 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses and thus even if we allowed the mapmaker got Arunah's middle name wrong, he was not living in this Hier Rd home.  It thus was likely a rental property owned by Amos.
