back Benjamin Russell (1643-1691) next
Russell House
This house at 127 Russell Street occupies the site of Benjamin Russell’s Indian-resistant homestead. They’re working on it, but I doubt it would long stand up to a determined aboriginal assault.

Ruth Wilkins1 adds that the Brandhorst home across the way is No. 122 Russell Street, “…near the spot where there has been such an extensive clump of lilac bushes for more years than anyone now [ca. 1976] can remember.”
