Samaritan House on the Move

Title:
  • Samaritan House on the Move
Description:
  • Samaritan House was erected in 1824 on Chapel Avenue, where Cochran Chapel now sits. It was the infirmary for the Theological School's students. Harriet Beecher Stowe and her husband Calvin lived here for a short while. It was moved to 6 School Street in 1929 to make room for the chapel. Up on rollers the house is on the road and the little lost boy in front may be deciding whether he can go home or not. Seeing a house moving along a strett can be disquieting.
