Description Berry-Hartley-Crosby house, southwest corner Massachusetts Avenue and School Street.

"Probably built by Ebenezer Stone in 1860. Subsequent owners were George W. Berry, H. A. Hartley (large carpet store in Boston), and James M. Crosby. Crosby was a sporting character, many very fine horses. He was presumed to be state agent of the Louisiana lottery. All buildings burned October 11, 1894 (or 1893?), loss of $60,000 (horses). Picture taken in the 1880s when Berry owned the place."
