In 1754, Samuel Watson Jr. of Leicester, Massachusetts, purchased eight acres on the hilltop. By 1767, his stately mansion was complete. It was the third house to be built on the hilltop and is the oldest remaining structure on Thompson Hill. Samuel Watson died in 1781, and upon his wife's death at 83 years old, the house and farm were sold in 1814 to Squire Geroge Larned. In 1825, Ellen Douglas Larned was born in this house. She was to become a widely known and respected historian. The overhanging third story, supported by four columns, forming the broad piazza, is typical of southern colonial architecture. The Watson Boutique B&B is an eighteenth-century getaway located within easy reach of twentieth-century pleasures. Thoughtfully designed to create a "Restoration Hardware and French Farmhouse" style, offering a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere to our travellers. Our house is a perfect retreat for couples, business groups, creatives and seekers with modern luxuries and special attention to details.
