Was it ever stated who lived in Ben's house before the Purge of the DHARMA initiative? Obviously when DHARMA came onto the island, they built the Barracks. The Other's were surely aware of the construction. The house that Ben lived in (post-purge) must have been built over an already standing structure that housed the Secret Door. I'm just wondering why the Other's would allow DHARMA to have the ability to summon the Monster whenever they pleased, and who exactly was it that lived there and had the access to do just that? Pierre Chang? Horace? Just wondering if anyone might have the answer to this?
