The Wild House, Washington St., circa 1869
Commonly known as the “Charles Wild House”, photo by Augustine Folsom. Dr. Charles Wild, the well-known town physician, owned the house until his death in 1864. It was then briefly owned by William Lincoln before being purchased by Stephen Dexter Bennett circa 1868. It was originally addressed as 446 Washington St. and it is now 26 Weybridge Rd. The house still stands today.

Barely visible sitting under a tree is a young boy who is probably Stephen Howe Bennett, b. Sep 1865.
