A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Originally owned by J.P. Harris, this victorian home was built in 1871, Mr. Harris died shortly after the completion. On July 10th, 1872 the house was sold to Mr. Otis Roberts, a prominent shoe box manufacturer. Mr. Elbridge Gerry Brown (ca. 1841-1893) was a leather merchant and in 1880 he and his wife moved into this house. After his death in 1893, his widow Caroline lived here until her death in 1909. Orren Fairfield, a lawyer, and his wife lived here from about 1911 until the 1920’s when it became the Elm Tree Manor. It was purchased in 1975 by the Phelan family and it was named the pleasant manor. In 1997, the house was purchased by the Rockett Family and it was renamed the Marblehead Inn. 1997 brought the purchase by Mr. Peter McMahon until 2011. The current owners (Bluefish Properties) purchased the home in 2011 and they are devotedly working to upgrade and restore this historial home. Welcome to today!
