The BENJAMIN JAMES Homestead was purchased by Jonathan Barker in 1804, Revolutionary Soldier, Levi Morrill purchased the property in 1834 giving the property to his son Benjamin and Abigail Morrill in 1834.
The property then went to Josiah Robinson Morrill and Filinda Weeks who had three children Mary, William, and Elizabeth "Lizzie" all of whom were born in the house.

Josiah Morrill passed the property to his daughter Mary Morrill Copp and her husband Frederick. Around 1927 or shortly after Mary's death the property was owned by Fred Currier. Mr. Currier sold the property in 1939 to a Mr. Wellsman. Today the property is owned by Jack and Betty Butler who purchased the home in the 1970's.
