The fist owner of this home was James E. Waterman. He was a noted merchant and partner in the Waterman Tanning Company in Bridgewater. In 1881, the property was purchased by Thomas Keefler. He too was a merchant and, in 1882, decided to become involved in politics, successfully running for the Liberal seat and, briefly, becoming a member of parliament for Lunenburg County.
