|John Tenney came from Alstead, New Hampshire in March 1820 with his
wife Sophia. He most likely built this house that stood in a picturesque
setting on Blakslee Road. His daughter, Lucy Ann Tenney, married John
Blakslee, Jr. The Tenney’s lived at the farm until 1872, and it then passed
into the hands of others. The Blakslee family later acquired it, and operated
it until the 1980's. It was the last dairy farm in Dalton. The house is no
longer standing, being dismantled in 2013.
