Site Master 1666-1792 (Oak) BNNHx1 (t = 5.64 VTOAK; 5.68 HUTCH; 5.17 PROSP).

The Bean House is a large, two-story timber framed house located in Salisbury, New Hampshire. The house is two rooms wide and two rooms deep with a central chimney stack between the front two rooms and a kitchen fireplace in the back of the chimney stack.

Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the building was built from stockpiled timbers felled between the winter of 1788/9 and the winter of 1792/3, suggesting that the building was constructed in the winter of 1792/3 or shortly thereafter.
