The area in which this cellar hole off of Horton Rd was found has been known as Barrett's Pasture.  This home was not on the 1854 or 1869 maps and presumably was already gone by 1854.  If so this was not the Barrett's home, the name of the area being derived from a subsequent usage of the property. The cover photo is the cellar hole.  Below is a possible well site behind the cellar hole followed by a possible stable site and at the bottom an outbuilding site. 

James Barrett (1839 - 1919) came to Clarendon from NH by 1870 when he married Alice Warren Kelley (1852 - 1923).  Alice was the daughter of Moses Warren Kelley (1825 - 1890) and Elizabeth A. (Benson) Kelley (1828 - 1902) whose farm was on Creek Rd near Horton Rd. 

This home was approximately 18' x 25' or about 450 sq. ft.  It is not known if there was a second level.  About 100' west of the house was a stable or barn approximately 12' x 20'.  The well was about 30' from the house slightly northwest from the northeast corner.  There is along trench (couple hundred feet) channeling water towards the well from a wet area above it.  Near the house there was also an outbuilding approximately 16' x 25'.
