The Harris – Stanwood house was built in 1696 by John Harris, was passed on to his descendant Thomas Harris. John Stanwood, a  Revolutionary War veteran, acquired the property in 1809 (187:233) and it remained in his family for many years. The house was expanded in the 19th and 20th centuries, including the side addition with a bay window facing Water Street.  Ornamental gardens grace the yard. A Victorian wing was added c. 1884, and the point of extension is clearly seen in the roof
