The Methodist Parsonage, the home of the resident Reverend and his family, was erected in 1887. It is the only house on the island with a basement and the first to have an indoor bathroom.

It was the first house to have chain link fence, starting a trend to replace wooden picket fencing with the modern fencing chosen by the then preacher. The current trend is a return to the more traditional picket fence.

At the far end of Parsonage Lane is the Annie Parks House, also moved from Canaan in the early 1920's.
