The Amos Learned Farm is a historic farmstead on New Hampshire Route 137 (Lower Jaffrey Road) in Dublin, New Hampshire. This 1-1/2 story wood frame Cape style house was built c. 1808 by Benjamin Learned, Jr., son of one of Dublin's early settlers, and is a well-preserved example of a period hill farmstead. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
Description and history
The Amos Learned Farm is located in a rural setting of eastern Dublin, on the west side of NH 137, about 0.6 miles (0.97 km) south of its junction with New Hampshire Route 101. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, with a gabled roof, central chimney, and clapboarded exterior. Its main facade is oriented facing south, presenting a side gable to the street. Windows are placed irregularly, with a center entrance on the south facade. A single-story ell extends to the west, which is stylistically similar, and there is a modern garage about 100 feet (30 m) south of the house.
The house was built about 1808 by Benjamin Learned Jr; he deeded the property to his brother Amos that year. Both of the Learneds eventually moved to Maine. The house stands near a discontinued road that went to the Upper Jaffrey Road, where their father's house also still stands. Later owners of the property include Irish and Finnish immigrants, representatives of a broadening of the population demographics of Dublin in the early 20th century.
