2. "An early view of the Whipple or Wheeler Place on E. side Lowell St. Known about the time of this photo as the Charles Putnam Place. It belonged, at a much earlier date, to Benjamin Fiske. In front of the stone wall in middle foreground can be seen the line of the original road filled in and graded over by J. Reed Whipple. [continues in another hand] The smaller house in front was moved South across Lowell Street and is now Shagbark Farm. Originally on what is now "Shagbark Farm" was 2 ancient houses long since destroyed."
