Josiah Robbins

Josiah Robbins, the first of his family to settle in Packersfield, acquired this place on a 999-year lease from the Town. This lot was one of the lots reserved in the original grant of Monadnock #6 for the support of religion in the town.  Josiah acquired the property in 1802, built a modest house here and sold it to his son, Samson Robbins in 1812. Samson was the last inhabitant leaving the place in 1818.
