SCA, p.31: BUCKNAM HOUSE William P. Bucknam was the original owner of this two and one-half story house on Key Street. It was built in 1821 by Daniel Low, and is an exact replica of the Livermore House across the street. The similarity is not easy to see as the two buildings are oriented in different directions. The house has a five bayed front which faces the street, gabled roof and narrow clapboards. It was known as the Parsonage for many years. AFN
