A bit of research

I was planning on taking the day off today...whatever that means...and then I got caught on the computer. There's a new blog that has a lot of good links for researching the history of wood frame houses and I got totally sucked in.
It includes the Robinson's maps from 1886 (which I had already seen at the historical society first hand), and then the 1880s maps--and yup--we're on that one too.
For those of you that may not know--pink means masonry, and yellow mean wood frame.
Here's 1886
(I put a blue dot where the house is located on the full's very small, and an arrow on the close-ups):

and 1880

I'm dying to figure out how old this place is really....
