Bricks from the house that Samuel Wadsworth built.


Luther Heaton

Luther and Joanna Eaton were the original settlers of the Wadsworth Place (A-2-7) but sold that to Samuel Wadsworth in 1807 and reserved ten acres here where they built themselves a small house and barn. In their later years they moved into a room especially fitted for their use in the new brick house that Samuel Wadsworth had built on their old farm. Luther conveyed this place to the heirs of Samuel Wadsworth in 1835. Luther died in Roxbury in 1840 at age 84 and is buried in the cemetery there.
