Basic text is from the DAR History of Hollis Homes, edited by Deborah E. Lovejoy 1953 with accompanying map (Cudworth). Codes used are initials of editors from this book and from 1999-2000 update editors. See bibliography for full information.
Ben Gould built this house some time after 1914. After him Chester Whittemore occupied it. It was sold to Edward Lievens and in 1951 Harry Wilkins is the tenant.
[In 1999 Lester Adams is tenant of this house on 29.6 ac. for Lievens Brothers, Woodmont Orchards.ese]
Note 2002 ese An interview with Bob Gould corroborates that this house predates Ben Gould and could not have been built by Ben Gould. It is a Greek Revival building typical of the 1800s and was probably built about that time with the side dormers and ell being later additions. The DAR text is incorrect on this except that it was sold to Edward Lievens and is still Woodmont Orchard property.
