220 Washington Street/ 2 Cushing Street

 This corner house has two addresses. Originally 220 Washington street, Charles W. Webb moved here about 1935 and operated a grocery store at 158 Washington. In the mid-1940s the back of this home became 2 Cushing Street. Vernon Webb lived there and took over the grocery store while Charles W. started and insurance and real estate business. A few years later Irving Webb took over the store and Vernon joined the insurance firm. The grocery went out of business about 1958.
