House of Dr. Eliakiam Morse on Galen Street, later owned and occupied for many years by Harrison P. Page who ran a glass factory in western Massachusetts that sold glass to Tiffany & Co.. Demolished in 1895. House stood on a knoll about 50 feet above Galen Street. Knoll was reduced in height to allow Capitol, Eliot, and Union Streets to be cut through. Eliakim Morse studied medicine with his uncle in Woodstock, CT but came to Boston to engage in foreign trade and accumulated a large estate. He built the the colonial mansion on the highest point of the Cooke estate. It is through his efforts the country road was named "Galen Street" in honor of the father of medicine among the ancients, the road had been widened and made more uniform and beautiful with trees. When he sold it to Harrison Page, the meadow land near Newton was mapped out into building lots. On this track had stood a grove of Chestnut trees.
