Significance: The old (1733-74) portion of the house is representative of the typical New England minister's house in the 2nd quarter of the 18th century. It was enlarged toward the end of the century and again enlarged and thoroughly Victorianized in the middle of the 19th century by the grandson of the Rev. Timothy Walker, who also built the adjacent Joseph Walker Cottage. Finally, to bring the pendulum full swing, the old house, in this century has had its facade restored to more or less its original aspect.
