Abstract
The Bell House is significant as an example of a typical mid-nineteenth-century small farm dwelling. Built circa 1840, the earliest portion of the house is based on a hall-parlor plan with a paneled winder stair and fireplace in the hall. The house is remarkable for the level of original finish that survives in the Period I section, including original decorative paint on the interior of the cabinet doors in the hall.
