Dana and Kay,i was able to look at the plaque earlier today and saw that it was built between 1808-1809.Upon further research i also found out it was built by the board of public works and the man in charge of construction was William "Billy" Abbot Whitman Sr.

Dave you are Awesome! Appreciate your attention to detail and moderating to keep Historic well at least notable. Learned the difference in part from your work. Still don't want to discourage those in the learning curve , but an experienced critical eye is A GOOD thing. Thanks again for all you do.
