In the year 1710 there was a parcel of land sold that included the site of the common, and the seller ‘reserved the liberty of a highway through said land, from the Country road near to a place called Gravelly Bridge, to Widow Mercy Wade's.’ This house, after passing through the ownership of many different persons, finally came into the possession of Mr. Thatcher Magoun, senior, and Mr. George B. Lapham, Mr. Magoun owning the easterly half and Mr. Lapham the westerly half. The land upon which this house stood was used by Mr. Magoun for the preparation of materials that entered into the construction of his ships.
