90 County Road, the William Wade house (1822)

Captain William Wade house, 90 County RoadCaptain William Wade built the Greek Revival era house at 90 County Road in 1822. He was a carpenter by trade, and the house features an attractive stairway and handrails in the front entry hall.

While many are familiar with the extended Lord family whose homes lined High Street at the other end of town, the Wade family dominated this stretch along County Road.
