In 1889, for $750, George Walter Hinckley purchased the Isaac Chase farm in Fairfield with 100 acres and the farm house that would become Good Will Cottage, a home for children at Good Will Homes for Boys and Girls.

The farm house turned cottage for children is Greek Revival in style. The building was taken down in the 1990s and replaced with a copy, which is now the Alfond Visitor's Center at Good Will-Hinckley.

Isaac Chase was an ancestor of Senator Margaret Chase Smith.
