The Deacon Robert Lloyd House at 100 Beech Hill Road is one of the best-preserved Federal style houses in western Massachusetts. On a large pasture overlooking hills to the east, the house is part of an 18th century farmstead that includes two English style barns notable for their construction and degree of preservation. Built ca. 1790 the house on the interior has retained its 18th century floor plan with center chimney that opens into a vast fireplace with beehive oven and iron crane in the original kitchen, and fireplaces panelled with first-growth pine in the chamber and keeping rooms where once a tavern was operated in the 1790s and early 1800s. Boxed corner posts and summer beams, wide plank flooring, original doors and hardware provide much of the interior’s Federal style character. On the second floor a ballroom across the east has intact stenciling, and fireplaces are found in all its rooms with original plaster, chair rails and wide board flooring. Throughout the house windows with 12/8 sash have either been retained or replaced with wood of the same muntin pattern. Written up and illustrated in the 1912 book, The Taverns and Turnpikes of Blandford 1733-1833, as one of the few remaining taverns in the town, the house has been carefully rehabilitated so that its modern kitchen is in an ell of the early 1800s and all the features noted in the 1912 book remain today. One of the English style barns was selected to illustrate this early barn type in the publication Barns in the Highland Communities by the Trustees of Reservations. Selective tree removal of the property’s eastern woodland would restore an extensive view of Borden Brook Reservoir from the house.
