A description of this ca. 1830's Clarendon Springs Lane home from the 1976 Vermont Historic Survey can be seen at the link above.
Who built this home and in what year is not known. It was the home of Isaac Scott Hall (1829 - 1911) and his wife Helen Martha (Tower) Hall (1835 - 1914) by time of the 1860 census. Isaac came to Clarendon from Pittsford in the 1850's; Helen had been born in Clarendon. They had two sons, David who died as an infant in 1861 and Mahlon who died at age 18 of typhoid fever in 1873. Isaac had been a farmer, a soldier in the Civil War in 1861, by 1870 a carpenter, in 1892 Clarendon Postmaster (a role he was still in at the time of the 1900 census), and in the 1910 census for Clarendon was recorded as having a grocery store. The April 18, 1911 Barre Daily Times noted:
Isaac Scott hall, a retired marble dealer, died at his home in Pittsford Saturday at the age of 82 years. he was a veteran of the First Vermont regiment, and was the oldest Mason in Rutland county.
