Year built: 1927

Seven Gables was originally built as a gas station in 1927 by Hayden Tormey, Sr. and his son, Bing, then a high school student. Behind the garage door in the picture, beneath a new false floor, the mechanic's pit is proof of the building's original purpose.

Across the intersection and across the street from the general store, the Tormey's had several, perhaps 4 or 5, small rental cottages. Two of those burned down and the others were demolished to make room for a modern residence.

It has been owned by Audrey Miller since 2003.
