David Fitch House

This Bedford, Mass., homestead was built in 1800 for miller David Fitch, Jr., a third generation of Fitches to run a nearby gristmill on the Shawsheen River.

The house was acquired by the Frances E. Willard Settlement in the 1920s and used as a summer camp. Its visitors moved to the other age of the age spectrum from 1927-1946, when it functioned as a nursing home facility.

These days, it is owned by the Carleton-Willard retirement village and is used as a guest house for family visiting residents of the community.
