This is the home of Elijah Terry, whose 1823 house was moved next door to the schoolhouse on Horseblock Road, Farmingville.

Some of the earliest settlers to Farmingville were Daniel and Elijah Terry. The earliest houses were built betwee 1770 and 1797. Elijah Terry, the first Schoolmaster in Farmingville, resided at the Terry House. The Terry Family owned a significant amount of land in Farmingville in the early 1800′s.

The Terry House was originally across the street from the Mobile station on the northeast corner of Portion/Horseblock Road and College Road. It was the 2nd house from the corner. It sat very close to the road. When Horseblock/Portion was widened, the Terry House had to be relocated. After being relocated next to the Bald Hill Schoolhouse, the Terry House was damaged by arson. Reconstruction was halted due to restrictions due to Town Codes. The Terry House was originally white and will be painted white again once it is completed.
