The attached paper about the Potter House on West Tinmouth Rd was written in 1992 by 7th grader Brian Dorherty who grew up in this house.   

The back half of this house was built pre-1777.  It is not known when the front portion was built.  The attached report indicates Julius Ewing (1809 - 1886) as the original builder but that is not likely given when he was born if the home was in turn bought by Joseph Warren Potter (1801-1849) and his wife Lucy Fisk (1800 - 1879) in the 1820's.  Perhaps it was Julius' father Daniel Ewing (1787-1862) who built the house?
