Notes
Survey number HABS MA-963
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-273).
Significance: Although the Town of Barnstable voted "to build a house for the poor" as early as 1722, the present structure appears to date from 1821, apparently replacing the one built in 1769 for the same purpose. The house was used in some institutional capacity for the Town as late as 1935. / Built in 1821 on a tract of land willed to the Town of Barnstable by Parker Lombard in 1754 for a poor farm this house replaced the earlier one-story house built in 1769. The large wing on the northeast was added in the twentieth century.
