According to the Lexington Historical Commission, a house at 23 Eliot Road was built in 1900 for Charles Follen Garrison, the son of famous abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison. Charles was named for Charles Follen, founding minister of the Follen Community Church who was a noted abolitionist and Unitarian minister and died in 1840. Two of W.L. Garrison’s other sons also had homes on Munroe Hill. William, Jr. lived on Percy Road. http://historicsurvey.lexingtonma.gov/lexareas/area-o.htm)
