Description Poor Farm, Hill Street opposite Cedar Street.

"Residence of Thomas Moore. He was in Lexington before 1730 and the old part of the house probably dates around that time. A very prominent family - his daughter Lydia married Captain John Parker and his daughter Abigail married Henry Dunster, grandson of the first president of Harvard College. Town purchased the property in 1845. Buildings all torn down in 1930."
