891/893 Longmeadow Street (#53 The Stephen Hale House - 1831)

Stephen Hale lived in this house in 1831 and it is believed that he built the house. It was one of the few duplex houses in Longmeadow although today it is a single family home. The Longmeadow Post Office was here. Albrion K. Matthews served as the Post Master during the administration of Grover Cleveland. Mrs. Matthews had a small store, the "Cheap Cash Store". The 1894 map shows the post office and store as separate buildings on the property but the second building had disappeared by the early 1900's.
