This first photo I took in the summer of 2009
This photo below, I just took yesterday 26 March 2010
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 6, the Mary Walker House sits on lot number 47 which was granted to one Seth Walker who came to Fort #4 back in 1750. Mr. Walker's son, Abel, is said to have been a man of many accomplishments. In addition to the work on the farm, he also made ploughs, chairs, saptroughs, canoes, and just about anything else which was in demand by the circumstances or necessities of those early times. In 1760 Abel left his varied kind of life and became an innkeeper. The sign for the Walker Tavern, pictured a beehive and bees, its said that it was probably copied from the Beehive Tavern of Philadelphia which advertised.
(Here in this hive we're all alive, Good liquor makes us funny. If you are dry, stop in and try the flavor of our honey).
The inn stood approximately where the stone marker now is and later it was moved back of the farm buildings to give space for the very charming stone cottage that we get to see to this day, which was built in 1834 by Mary Walker the grand-daughter of Abel Walker.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 6, Mary Walker's brother Samuel, was a Selectman in 1857 to 1758, and Representative in 1859 and lived in the cottage for the remainder of his life. In 1929, the D.A.R. (Daughters of the American Revolution) raised enough money from food sales, musicales, and whist parties to dedicate a Walker Tavern marker and placed it on the property 11 November 1929.
The Walker Tavern was once again moved across the tracks to Southwest Street, where sadly it ended up burning to the ground back in the 1960's. In addition to ministering to the wants of man and beast, the Walker Tavern was where the New Hampshire Legislature meet September 12th to the 29th of 1787.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 6, there are two ghosts that occupy the Mary Walker Stone Cottago, according to one Cheryl Grabe, a former inhabitant of the Mary Walker house. The Grabes, very first encounter was with an old man with white hair, in a white linen suit, was sitting in a rocker in their living room, the print on the newly reupholstered chair showed through the apparition. Then later, in a west bedroom, a man was seen looking out the window. As the man turned back toward the room, they noted that he was a black man. There have been many appearances of the two men, and the Grabe family talked of the two men often. The children in the home were not at all afraid of the two men, and they even gave them the names of Fred and Hollingsworth.
Then in 1976, as a part of the Charlestown bicentennial celebration, Cheryl Grabe attended a slide program on the homes and folks of earlier days in the Town of Charlestown. And very much to her surprise, on the screen appeared a photo of her home with a man, with white hair, wearing a white suit, sitting in a rocking chair on the porch. The man in the photo was identified as Mr. Samuel Walker, Mary Walker's grandson. It was known that Samuel Walker had a black manservant.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 6, Remember when you buy a Charlestown, New Hampshire Historic Home, you are buying and preserving a peace of American History. So why not look at the Town of Charlestown, New Hampshire's Historic Home District.
