Cyrus Pierce House

The Cyrus Pierce House is one of a few Gothic Revival style houses in Concord, Mass. Built in 1850, this house is unique in its granite block rendition of this architectural style.

Cyrus Pierce was a shoemaker-turned-stonemason and likely used this house to showcase his talents. His stonemasonry can still be found many places around Concord, including Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and one of the town bridges.

He also relaid the wall of the Old Hill Burying Ground, which you can see to the left of the house in the pics, and is basically right in the back yard of this house.

Cyrus’ mother-in-law, Susan Ann Parks, lived in the added north corner ell for a time, which was known by the family as “Grandma’s part.”

The Pierces had 10 children, some of whom lived here at various stages. Daughter Ella, and her husband Milo, bought the house after Mrs. Pierce (who survived Cyrus by many years) died.

At 2,324 square feet, the house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It last sold in 2011 for $1.14 million dollars.
