The Deacon Jonas Lane house
Description:
Between Harvard Road and the railroad tracks near the Route 117 intersection was the Deacon Jonas Lane House, which was built in 1786. Deacon Lane (1761-1848) was said to have been a "man of influence" in town and church affairs. This photograph shows the house, with buttonwood trees in front, as it looked in 1893. Many years later, the house and barn were burned down.
