Hello,

Thank you for calling our attention to this image. You are correct that this is not the Lyman Estate, but it does not appear to be the Robert Treat Paine House either (although it does have many similarities). We have been unable to identify the image accurately, but I have changed the record to reflect that it is not the Lyman Estate (as you can see from the record now). Thank you again for point out this error.

Best,
