"The Maple" maybe?

I see only one in the yard for sure. "The Elms" would have been appropriate, though.

Still there

But minus the porch, and with an addition on the right which is now used as a church. I’ll take the original, thanks.

The Dorr is still open?

Well, still there, anyway!

Church of Rutland

This house on Dorr Road in Rutland was once the home of Julia Caroline Dorr, a 19th century American author known for both prose and poetry. She was born in South Carolina, but grew up in Vermont. Her husband was Seneca M. Dorr, a lawyer and politician originally from Vermont. The couple moved to Rutland in 1857, which was probably around the time this house, known as “The Maples,” was built. The Dorrs lived here for the rest of their lives; Seneca would practice law in Rutland and go on to serve as the President of the Vermont Senate, and Julia continued to publish her work.

Now converted to a church.
