The long barn in the back is still standing today, but a part of a different parcel. The large barn in front of it is no longer standing.

Research in local records and historic atlases indicate that this originally was the farm of John Ward MacCoun (1821-1900), his first wife Mary Talbott (1826-1881) and then his second wife Elizabeth Carrington (1839-1930). After the MacCoun family, it appears to have been owned by Cornelious Disney (1875-1948).

The Italianate style of the home points to a build date of around 1875.
