The floor plans of the Wells-Thorn house in Deerfield, Massachusetts, date from the early 1960s when the house ceased to be used as a private home. Purchased by Helen Geier Flynt from its owner, Mrs. Edwin C. Thorn, in 1962, the house was studied for original features with the intent of opening it to the public as a house museum. William E. Gass & Son, contractors in South Deerfield, presented these plans showing elevation, ceiling height, placement of chimneys, windows, doors, with an eye to the restoration of the house close to its original look.
