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.
Henry Galbraith Ward sold the farm to his brother Artemas Ward (the grocer and advertiser) for $2043.
