"About 1815 Starr Ferry moved to the town from Brookfield, having decided to settle near his wife's old home. He purchased of Sandy Mc Lane, on Stony Hill, a little house and erected a hat shop on the east side of his farm. Feeling that his location was not adapted to his energies, in 1820 he sold his farm to Major Dikeman, who converted the shop into a dwelling."
