Thomas Nelson Sr. emigrated from England and acquired, through purchase, the land along this road both east and west of here. On his death, the land was split between his two sons and daughter. Thomas Jr. lived here, Josiah lived to the west and Tabitha owned the property she received. If she married, land ownership would have transferred to her husband.

As British soldiers clashed with Colonists on the return march toward Boston on the afternoon of April 19, 1775, many of the local residents, fearful of danger, left the area. When Thomas Nelson Jr.'s family returned home, they found a wounded British soldier on their doorstep. Although the family nursed his wounds, he died the next day.
