Nelson) was built by John Adams or his son Willain between 1714 (when the land was purchased) and ca. 1730.

The house is of the center-chimney, 5-bay type, its walls clad in very slender clapboards which give it an exceptionally fine-grained appearance. The central entry door is framed by Tuscan pilasters which support a flat entablature. A four-light transom with bull's eye glass is set abouve the six-paneled door.
