Details from the historic survey for this ca. 1830's (per the survey) Rt 7B North home can be found at the link above.  Per Dawn Hance this house is said to have been built in 1824. 

Moses Strong (1772 - 1842) of Rutland owned the property when the house was built but it does not appear that he ever lived in Clarendon.  The house is instead named after Nathan Munn Lounsbury (1755 - 1857), a Revolutionary War veteran who lived to be almost 102 and who lived here in his final years with his 2nd wife, Sarah (Vanderhyden) Lounsbury (1796 - 1878).  Nathan was born in Woodbridge, Connecticut and lived in Pawlet, VT, then Rutland, and came to Clarendon before the 1850 census was taken. His death record indicates he was a cooper by trade.  Nathan's 1st wife was Lucy (Pelton) Lounsbury (1754 - ?) with whom he had 4 children.

This house was owned by Paul Shedd at the time of the 1976 historical survey.  A photo from that survey is below.  Below that is a photo from 1989 town records.  At the bottom is a 2007 photo from town records.
