Hon. Salmon Buell from Ithaca, New York, father of Salmon D. Buell and Perez Barnum Buell, purchased all of lot 3 and parts of lots 4 and 5 in Cat's Creek Allotment (240 acres) from Enoch Wing in December 1814 for $3,500. (Vol. 13, p. 82) Norris Schneider's History of Lowell and Adams Township says the Buell House was "a large, square brick house on the river bank opposite the south end of Market Street. The Buell house was the one later known as the Dutton House." Schneider credits the Buell brothers with building the house, but this is probably incorrect. H. Z. Williams' History of Washington County, Ohio, states, "Enoch Wing improved the farm and built the house now owned by Hanson Dutton." (p. 559) Wing owned the land from 1798 to 1814, so the house would have been built between these years. It was at the extreme southern part of lot 5 overlooking the Muskingum River. By 1817 Hon. Salmon Buell and his wife moved to Marietta. They spent their later years in Cincinnati.
