Item Information

Title:
The Doctor Franklin Perkins School and former Mrs. Iver Johnson estate
Description:
This elegant estate on North Main Street was built in 1910 as a country home for Mrs. Iver Johnson. Her late husband was well known for the manufacture of firearms and bicycles and, in 1894, had opened a retail sporting-goods store in Fitchburg. In 1934, the estate became the Dr. Franklin Perkins School, serving a wide range of clientele in a nurturing and homelike environment. The facility has been expanded several times over the years.
