I live in this house although it has been remodeled.
It was built in 1812 and was known as the Bald Hill School. After the Centerville School was built in 1870 it became a chapel or meetinghouse called the Pine Grove Hall. When the church was buil in 1908, the chapel was moved diagonally across the street where it served as the caretakers residence of the estate ever since.

I would be interested in knowing what is written on the back of the sketch.

I have a copy of a photograph of this sketch if you would like me to send it. The original, I believe is at the Beverly Historical Society.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
