In 1873 William Willoughby bought the property from the heirs of Samuel Sewell.  In 1874, his tax record includes a "new shop" valued at $200.   By 1876, William Willoughby had a carriage Shop & 3 other shops at this location valued at $1000.  The 1877 map shows three structures with 22 Main Street and 24/26 Main Street being approximately the same size and in the same position.   A mortgage from 1879 describes a house, carriage shop, and furniture store at this location.   It is believed that William Willoughby built this house in 1876 or 1877.
