Historical Narrative: 

This land was once owned by John Nuckly who sold a three acre parcel to May P. Haggerty on June 13, 1882. Haggerty later sold the three acre parcel to Martha W. Packard in February 1911. Martha sub-divided the parcel into three one acre lots, two fronting on South Main St. and one on the corner of South Main and Orchard St.
This parcel was the middle lot and was sold to her daughter Frances E. (Packard) McClellan on Oct. 11, 1916.
Once designated 2 Orchard St. but now 332 South Main the bungalow style home was designed by neighbor, Addison B. LeBoutillier. A driveway from Orchard St. came across the corner parcel and continued in front of the house and out to South Main.

In 1990 John McClellan stated; "My mother Frances McClellan bought the original one acre from her mother, Mrs. A.S. Packard in July 1916. She joined the November Club, did all the work for six children, and sent them all through school, and some to college. In about 1934 she started a gift shop in the sitting room. There was a sign on the Main Street saying "McClellan Gift Shop" till 1971. She always had a garden, and every kind of fruit tree or berry.

The McClellans moved to Haverhill, MA and settled in on a farm on North Broadway, near the Lake. Percy was a farmer and died on June 3, 1916 at age 49.
