This house, at #1 Elm Street, Townsend, MA was purchased by the Whitten family (Ted & Donna, at the time, with sons T.D. and Chris) in early 1972. Ted's father owned The Old Brick Store, which was directly next door at the corner of Elm and Main Street. At the time, T.D. was 3 and Chris was still small and not walking yet. In September of that year, Holly & Michelle were living downstairs. Later, Holly & Barry lived upstairs, and the Whittens lived downstairs. In April or May of 1976 Donna moved with T.D. and Chris to the Parish House, while T.D. was 7 (and in the middle of his 1st grade year) and Chris was 4. Around April of 1978 Vicki moved in (with her Dog Henry). In 1978 or 1979 Henry died and was buried here, with an apple tree being planted over him. 6-16-79 Ted & Vicki purchased Donna's share of the house. They finally sold the house around May of 1980.
