Inscription.  In 1864 & 1865, George Sulliva Stearns purchased two parcels of land totaling nearly 24 acres around the crest of a hill in what had recently become known as Wyoming. On that land, he built a lovely Victorian house, complete with a barn and gardens. After his death in 1889, his daughter, Amy Stearns Cowing and her husband Rufus Alan Cowing, raised their family in that house. After 1920, the house was demolished and the property subdivided into smaller lots along the original driveway. That driveway is now known as Linden Drive, the street at your left.
