The Nathaniel Harris house, 10 East Street is a Georgian-style house built in 1819 on a section of land from the Baker Newman property next door. His tombstone at the Old North Burying Ground shows that he died at the age of 54 in 1831, but his widow Elizabeth Staniford lived into her 90’s. The county laid a pipe connecting a spring on this land to the house of corrections on Meetinghouse Green. It was later supplemented with a well.
