Craftsman - Four Square
This property was once part of the two acre parcel of George R. Waterman’s property at 41-43 High St. (the brick residence of the adjoining property to the rear) Waterman worked for the Pacific Mills in Lawrence and after his death the property was inherited by his widow Lucretia. This lot was “staked out” in 1890 and sold to Annie L. Bell on Oct. 30, 1890.
Annie Laurie Bell was born on August 15, 1860 in Andover, dau. of Robert & Mary Ann (Russell) Bell. The Bells built their home at 44 Maple Ave and this lot was the north side yard.

This property was originally #40 Maple Ave and re-numbered #50 in 1928.
Martin R. Sawyer worked for the Walworth Brothers, Inc in Lawrence and a master machinist. Martin would sub-divide his lot and sell this parcel to E. “Nettie” Ellis Hudson on Aug. 5, 1913.
