Significance: Although no firm construction date can be applied, the Well House was built no later than 1942 when sources note at that time the well house was not working and that the Riddle family lived on the property. In 1869 Lyman Ballou bought 165 acres in what would become the town of Herndon; Ballou sold twenty acres from this tract in 1878 to Ferdinand Stephenson who built the original portion of the house two decades later. His daughter Maltida inherited the property in 1906. By 1970 the twenty acres had been reduced to one. On the property is the main house, begun in 1898 and added onto over the years, the well house, a two-car garage with shop space and overhead storage, and a storage shed built in 2002. The shed is attached to the rear of the garage.
