I took these up-close images of the photo - appears to have just had a new board-n-batten roof.
More than twenty years ago I was contacted by a family member ( who was born and raised in Boston ) about re-building a house to match the family home that was still standing at Ross's Mill - it was not restorable. We documented the house and produced drawings. Below are photos I took that day of the house and barn - both have long since disappeared.
