Themes - Architectural, Community Development

The triangular parcel of land contained within Elm, Whittier and Summer Streets was once part of Capt. Nathaniel Whittier's estate. His homestead is at 10 Summer Street. Whittier's estate was sold by his heirs, Hannah E. Whittier and Mary W. Dickinson on April 13, 1900 to John H. Campion, and Andover merchant with a store on Elm Square. John Campion was also a business partner with Jacob W. Barnard and Barnett Rogers with land development.

The parcel contained 2 acres 151 sq. rods of land and the Whittier homestead. Champion, Barnard and Rogers divided the vacant land into 18 house lots and began selling them off. This parcel was lot #13 at the corner of Elm and Whittier Streets. The lot was purchased by Elisha R. Barton and wife Annie M. Barton on May 1, 1901. The deed
came with the following restrictions;
" The land shall be used only for dwelling houses, and only one house to cost not less than $2500. shall be maintained there on. No old house shall be moved on to the premises. No building shall be placed nearer than twenty feet to the line of either street, but steps, piazzas, bay windows and porticoes may be projected into said space. No livery stable, private stable, manufacturing, mechanical or mercantile business shall be permitted during said term."

Barton had the home built and took a mortgage with the Andover Savings Bank for $3500. Barton owned the home for nine years then sold to Joseph L. Kline of Lawrence, MA on Jan. 17, 1910. The mortgage was carried with the deed. Kline leased the home to James C. Hunter for two years beginning on Nov. 5, 1910 and ending on May 15, 1912.
