7 Richmond St. House: Haverhill, MA
A few folks have been asking: where is the house that Mr. Adams picked up and turned around because of a disagreement with his neighbor?
The answer is: the house at 7 Richmond St., Haverhill, MA, moved by John Frederick Adams (Generation #9).

I am not 100% sure, but an informal search has identified this house (pictured above), which fits details documented by Garry Adams in 2000 in the following ways:
- Faces away from the street
- Aerial view shows a body of water that may have been a pool (or pond)
However, it differs from Garry’s description in that she noted:
- The pillars on the house were gone
- The house had been turned into a duplex
The real estate listing above states that the house was built in 1900, and is a Single Family property.
Efforts to verify the location of John Frederick’s house at 7 Richmond St. are being made by following up with the Haverhill Public Library. (The source of this story was Librarian, Gregory Laing.)
Sadly, it appears to have been foreclosed and is up for sale!
