said Judge Thomas Parker, in his history of Farmington, " for
a dwelling house " for himself and wife and seven children for
two winters. To this bark house he added, in 1783, a small
frame house, the first of the kind in Farmington. These served
for his family and for public meetings until 1789, when he built
what was long called "the Butterfield Red House,"' which was
afterwards painted white and occupied by hi.-, son Moses.
