Starting at Washington Square we will now go up Front street. We first come to the little old-fashioned cottage where the sisters of Captain Warren Weston lived. Beyond this house the land on the right-hand side of the street was unoccupied until we arrive at the house of the late Mr. Ebenezer Richards (now occupied by his son, George Richards). In my boyhood this land on the north side of the street belonged to the Tufts family and was covered with fine apple trees."
