First Ransford Button House (1823)

July 28th, 2017 Posted in Andover, Federal Style, Houses

Ransord Button, a merchant, came from New York State and settled in Andover in 1822-1823, where he built the Federal-style cottage at 25 Hebron Road. In 1841 he built the house next door at 27 Hebron Road. There is some indirect evidence that Button then used his earlier cottage as a store and post office, at least until he became the depot master about 1860.
