Betsy and Henry Wheeler came to Packersfield from Concord, Massachusetts in 1796 and built the home here. They farmed the place until 1801 when they moved to B-3-11. Andrew Stiles followed and lived there until his death in 1828; his wife, Dorcas Beard, lived there after him until just before her death. Willard Jewett bought the farm and 165 acres in 1836 and was there until he died in 1889. Winslow Atwood succeeded him.
