Near the intersection of Route 117 and North Main Street, the gracious, Federal-style Carter-Washburn House was built in 1812 by Dr. Calvin Carter. It was later occupied by retired Boston businessman John M. Washburn. Washburn, who resided in Lancaster until his death in 1861, lost two sons in the Civil War--Capt. Edward R. Washburn and Col. Francis Washburn. This photograph was taken in 1891.
