5 Lexington Street

 Lot #2 was purchased by William Moore in 1885. He was in the dry goods business and operated stores in both Dover and Rochester. Mr. Moor built the house that is now on the lot in 1889 and lived there until 1923 when he sold the house to George J. Foster and moved to 171 Washington Street. George Foster did not live in the house but rented it to others.
