Champney Home and Studio, by Frances and Mary Allen, after 1886.

During the late 19th century, the studio of artist, illustrator, and photographer James Wells Champney was located next to his Deerfield home built c. 1730. A tailor and a blacksmith had maintained businesses on this same property in the 1700s.
