Description Walter Wellington house and great elm, Maple Street and Massachusetts Avenue lower corner.

"This is the Walter Wellington house and the great elm when it was in its prime. Isn't it a beautiful tree? The house is probably not yet 100 years old but the tree was a good sized tree in 1775. The picture gives you some idea how this corner looked before the filling station and the houses were built. The picture was taken in 1890."
