In 1824, Edward Zane Collings undertook the construction of a house for himself and his widowed sister, Rebecca Knight, on farmland north of Newton Creek that he had inherited from his father in 1820. The property had been passed down from his great-grandfather, Robert Zane, an original settler and member of the 1682 Newton Colony. He enagaged the services of local carpenter John Ireland with a design that imitated early Federal style farmhouses.
