Aaron Felt of Temple, NH bought 100 acres in the northeast corner of Packersfield in 1782 from the confiscated estate of Breed Batchellor. Owing to an early dispute over the location of Packersfield’s eastern border, the lot was partly in Packersfield and partly in Antrim.
Tax records show him as a non-resident who cleared land for pasture. Felt died in Temple 1802 and the land passed in 1814 to his son, David, who probably built the house at about that time. The place was not inhabited very long. David was a resident of Temple when he sold a 2-acre piece of the property in 1838.
