The Benjamin Fellows House at 27 Lakeman’s Lane won the Honorable Mention for the Mary Conley Award in 1993. The house was built between 1719 and 1740.

Ephraim Fellows inherited the homestead of his father Benjamin on Lakeman’s Lane. Ephraim was a private in Captain Thomas Burnham’s Company which marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775, fighting in the Battle of Lexington. He was at Saratoga and Burgoyne’s surrender in 1777. He fought under Col. Johnson’s Regiment and also that of Col. Genish, under Capt Jenkins and Capt Dodge. He saw further service probably from December 9, 1777 to February 3, 1778. DAR records list him as a private from Ipswich, MA and at his death he bequeathed the property to his heirs.
