When he moved in, General James Varnum used one room as both living quarters and brigade headquarters, and even held general courts martial. The owners, David and Elizabeth Stephens and their family, were allowed to remain in the rest of the house. A large portion of their farmland was used for the Grand Parade.

When Varnum's hut was completed, he joined his Rhode Island and Connecticut brigades hutted on both sides of the road near Stephens' home.
