The Hagadorn House was built in the early 1830's by Jesse Angell, a prosperous merchant whose general store was located across the street from his house. By 1867, the house was occupied by the John Wetherby family. Their daughter, Cornelia Wetherby married William Hagadorn in 1869. They resided here with her parents. In 1872 the Wetherbys moved to their farm and the house became the Hagadorn home.
It is believed that the original 1830's house consisted of the fireplace room with the attic/bedroom above. Cornelia's diary of 1868 mentions the addition of the kitchen area. The two front rooms, gallery and hall with corresponding rooms above were built later--probably during the doctor's time because the present gallery was the doctor's office. In 1971, the house was bequeathed to the Almond Historical Society by Kenneth Wetherby Hagadorn, grandson of Cornelia Wetherby and Dr. William Hagadorn
Our building project began!
We are constructing a 28x42 building in the style of a one-room schoolhouse to house our office and archives room. This building will replace small room in the upstairs of Hagadorn House. It will be handicap accessible, more secure from loss by fire, and will provide much-needed space for our archives room workers and our visitors. Don Jefferds of Jefferds Construction, assisted by Larry Perry, broke ground and dug the foundation for our new office/archives room project. David Gillette and Jeremy Roberts built footers and the foundation walls have been poured. The Hagadorn House is also getting a facelift with a new coat of paint! These are exciting days!
