This Clarendon Flats Middle Rd structure is said to have been built in 1890 but if it is in fact the home Timothy K. Horton (1814 - 1896) built after his prior home burnt in 1892, then the correct year it was built is 1893 per the Aug. 3, 1893 Rutland Daily Herald:

T.K. Horton, who is over 80 years old, has begun building a house to replace one burned a year ago.

Given his age at the time (79, not 80 as the paper said) and with his wife in poor health (she died a month later), building a very small home such as this would make sense.  Further research might prove or disprove this hypothesis. 

See the Locust Lodge entry for information about the larger dwelling on this parcel.
