dc.descriptionFrontal view of windows on the south elevation; In the late 1700s, Captain Samuel Hathorn II, the son of Alexander, replaced one of the cabins with a frame house, creating the original structure of the present Olson House. His son, Captain Aaron Hathorn, occupied the house until 1859. In 1871, Aaron's son, Captain Samuel Hathorn IV, dramatically altered the original structure. A new, steeply pitched roof replaced the former hip roof, enabling several bedrooms to be added to the third floor. The Olson House is the subject of numerous works of art by Andrew Wyeth, including Christina's World, 1948, now owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Wyeth's series of drawings, watercolors and tempera paintings featuring Christina Olson, her brother Alvaro and the house itself, occupied Wyeth from 1939 through 1968. The Olson House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. Source: Farnsworth Museum [website]; http://farnsworthmuseum.org/ (accessed 2/11/2008)en_US
