Reverend Tracy of the second Congregational Church and later Pastor of the Second Parish Congregational Church of Saco built this large late Federal style house in 1826. Reverend Tracy came to Biddeford from Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1823. This was the first brick house built in Biddeford and was situated on the corner of Barren Lane (presently Stone Street) at the summit of Ram-Cat Hill. The house was purchased by the Saco Water Power Co. and was used as a home for the superintendents of the Pepperell Mills. Other large federal homes were demolished to make room for the mills. The house lot was shrunk as Ram-Cat Hill was blasted away to build Lincoln Street Pepperell Mill #3 and the northern portions of Main Street. At one time it housed the Sancoucy Funeral Parlor.

À une certaine période, le bâtiment logea le dépôt moruaire Sancoucy.
