Samuel Clark House, 322 Walnut St.
This house was built in 1715 by Samuel Clark (the 2nd) and was eventually occupied by 6 generations of the Clark family until its demolition in 1902. Caleb Clark, born in 1789 in the fourth generation, took ownership of the house and, in 1862, his son, another Samuel, constructed a house next door at 310 Walnut St. Samuel’s daughter, Helen Clark, took over the house with her husband, William S. Cutler. When they moved to a new house steps away on Chestnut St., the Clark house was rented until 1898 to the just-widowed Alma Charity Mears Macallister (see additional photo of the house).
