* “In 1969, [[K. Norm Lambert|Mr. Lambert]] was transferred from the Sprague Electric Plant in [[North Adams]], where he was an engineer, to a Sprague plant in his native state of Maine. In order to receive his pension, he was forced to move the family away from [[Williamstown]] and his favorite house here. The Lamberts sold the house to the college to house the new and growing population of women on campus.”
* “The back section of the house was brought from a house on School Street and was joined to the original house in the early years of the twentieth century. The original house ends at the step down next to the upstairs bathroom.”
* “When the Lamberts bought the house bin in 1959 many of the neighborhood children thought that the house was haunted because of its dark color and because of the old woman who had lived there before them. Mr. Lambert’s first project after buying the house was for the family to scrape and paint the shingles. He chose a silver gray color because it reminded him of the shingle houses on Cape Cod, where the family used to vacation.”
