Zacheris Green House // c.1835

Located just a stones throw away from the Rockport Granite Company Office, this stone house was built by Zacheris Green, the president of the Boston and Gloucester Granite Company, which was later absorbed by the Rockport Granite Company. After the acquisition of the company, the old stone home, which was typically referred to as “The Homestead” was operated as a boarding house for quarrymen and their families. Rent was $3.50 a week, and the cost included washing and a daily lunch. The building has since been converted to a residence.
