5 Linebrook Rd., The Lord-Dorr-Woodbury house (c 1850)

Until the 20th Century, this section of Linebrook was called Boxford Road. This house first appears in the 1856 map, owned by I. or L. Lord. Isaac and Levi were names in the Lord family at that time. In the 1872 map the house belongs to L. Dorr.  In the 1884 map the house belongs to “Mrs. Dorr.”  G. Woodbury owned this house and the house next to the tracks in 1910.  The building has a simple Greek Revival frontispiece with plain frieze and projecting cornice. Windows on the facade are finished with similar friezes and projecting caps.
