The Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm and House
5 Little Lane
The Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm is the name of this historic site, situated on 230 acres. but I still tend to call it a House. We took the "The Walk through Time" tour with another couple. We were shown various rooms according to their date, beginning from the most recent, 1986 and going back to 1690. Our guide was fabulous, and talked non-stop. Only problem for me was, there was no way for me to retain everything I was told. So, I'm doing my best, and I have plenty of photos to help me out.
The property is open year-round, so you can visit the grounds and animals anytime.
The oldest part of the house, with one side painted white to show how the house would have looked. The photo below shows the door we entered into a small enclosed porch. The wallpaper was there when the last Little lived there in 1986.
We entered into the main house.
The four photos below show a 1930s kitchen. We were told that through the years, all the doors were windows and all the windows were doors!!
The door to the right leads to a small hallway then into the private living quarters of the Tenant farmer's house and his family.

The Tenent Farmer house on the left, was added around 1800. The most recent family to live there was that of Jacob Stekionis, he came around 1924 and raised his family. Three generations lived here. The small walk through leads from one dwelling to the other, locked on both ends.

I have decided not to use the Comment feature for my blog. If you would like to leave a comment for me or ask a question, please write me at my email: BarbaraPoole@Gmail.com. Thank you.
My reason is because since November 2017 to May 2018, I received no comments, but upon investigating I found that I had indeed received 167 legitimate ones and 1,000 were in the spam folder. Google Blogger had made some changes that I was unaware of. Please be aware that I do not know who reads my blog, I may know who subscribes, but that is all.
