Point of Interest Details

On the corner of Harrison and Elm (opposite Franklin Street) stands the vast Queen Anne structure once owned by John C. Hammond, who first employed Coolidge as a young attorney. Coolidge described Hammond in his biography: "The senior member of the law form was John C. Hammond, who was considered the leader of the Hampshire Bar. He was a lawyer of great learning and wide business experience...He was massive and strong rather than elegant, and placed great stress on accuracy."
