The Old House was the home of the original members of the Hopedale
    Community. As more and more shops were built, in 1874 the Old  House  was
    demolished.  Perry MacNevin recalls establishing its probable location which
    was determined to be a couple of hundred yards northwest of the Adin Ballou
    statue.  A plaque was placed on the outside wall of the building that now
    occupies the site.  Like the Old House, the plaque has also disappeared.
