Description 
Stone Building, Massachusetts Avenue, 1890. "This is a fine view of the house taken in 1890. It is almost unnecessary to repeat that it was erected in 1833 by Mr. Eli Robbins to provide a public hall for lectures and entertainments. Miss Ellen Stone presented it to the Town in 1892. It might be well to remind those who have only seen Miss Ellen Stone in recent years that she was very well educated, had traveled widely, and was interested in town affairs. She served two years on the school committee."
