Andrew Henshaw Ward wrote History of the town of Shrewsbury.
A very small, saltbox style house was built, possibly for use by tenants on the Ward farm. The family lived across the street in a large two-story farmhouse.
A slaughterhouse and shop were joined together and added to the barn to create a back ell.
Edward E. Wheelock, superintendent, continued to run the farm and recorded 24 head of livestock.
