Stephen Wing Farm

Stephen Rogers and Elizabeth Shove Wing were both notable Quakers. The house at 67 Grove Street once stood on land that is now Heritage Museums & Gardens. When raised in 1971 it was found to contain the frame and sheathing of an ancient one room house which was salvaged and re-assembled in Centerville by Stephen Hayes, Jr. (Source of details: The Sandwich Album by Rosanna Cullity and John Nye Cullity)
