The house was probably inherited in 1707 by Daggett's eldest surviving son, Joseph Daggett, a doctor of medicine, a wheelwright, and a miller. The farm is presumed to have been inherited by Joseph's son Israel, a cooper, in 1727. The house passed to various members of the Daggett family by inheritance or purchase, ending with Jefferson Daggett and his eldest son, Edwin O. Daggett. They continued to farm the property at least until 1870, when Jefferson died. The farm went into decline after the death of Jefferson Dagget, and was purchased as a "wornout farm" by the city in 1894.
The house was restored by the Daughters of the American Revolution starting in 1902 and opened as a museum in 1905.Advance notice is required for a tour.
