In 1966 when this photo was taken this house was part of the Burke family farm on Middle Road. It was built ca. 1845 by Daniel Platt (1807-1874) and his wife Phebe Spafford (1808-1856). Daniel and Phebe had 5 children with only 2 daughters surviving to adulthood. Daniel married a 2nd time to Betsey Brown (1816-1906)
The house was torn down in 2016. The barn for this farm can be seen in the Farms and Barns collection, labeled as the Burke Barn.
