8 Warren Street, the James Harris house

8 Warren Street, the James Harris house (1772-1887)

It is possible that part of this house may have some first period construction elements. In 1887, William Russell removed a house built in 1772 by James Harris at 12 High Street and built the Victorian house at that location. The old house was removed to 8 Warren St., in the ownership of David Grady, and was expanded.
