(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 289: Isaac Seaver's House in Leominster, Mass.

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph of an ancestral home taken on one of our vacation/genealogy trips to Massachusetts:

This is the house that was owned by Isaac Seaver (1823-1901) in Leominster, Massachusetts after he moved there from Westminster in about 1865.  It is located at 7 Cedar Street.  I took this photograph on our visit to Leominster in 2007.

Here's a Google Map of Leominster showing 7 Cedar Street near the intersection of Cedar Street (running southwest to northeast) and Lancaster Street (running northwest to southeast from downtown Leominster):

The house is the first house northeast of Lancaster Street on the east side of Cedar Street.  

I know that the house was sold after Isaac's death in order to pay the legacies outlined in his probate records.  I have not yet found the deed recording the purchase and the sale of this house.  That's another item for my lengthy to-do list.  They are not yet in the Land Records for Massachusetts digital images in FamilySearch.
