In 1889, William Watt was the first person from outside of the family to purchase the property. Under William Watt, one acre of land was donated for the construction of Wakefield Chapel Road. His son William Watt Jr. would inherit the property after his father's death in 1911.
The house would be bought away from the Watt family in 1931, after which it changed hands four times before being purchased in 1986 by Andrew and Carol Sheridan. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
