19 Summer Street, the Solemon Lakeman house (1745)

According to Thomas Franklin Waters, this land was “owned or occupied by Solomon Lakeman in 1745.” Solomon Lakeman in 1734 owned the Hodgkins-lakeman house at 76 East Street. The house is apparently second period, though the majority of its early detailing is concealed. The 1832 map shows the owner as “The widow Lakeman.”
