||George O. Smith house. Front view showing the barn, east side of Sickle Brook.
"I do not know how old this house is, but it was standing before the Revolution. I suspect it dated around 1750. Benjamin Brown who resided here in 1775 was a maker of boots and shoes and a very influential citizen. It was his son Solomon Brown, aged 18, who first discovered the presence of the British spies in Lexington. He gave the alarm and with two other boys followed the spies toward Concord. He was captured by the spies, later released and took part in the engagement on the Common. A pretty full day for an 18 year old boy!"
