It is a shame, but the history of buildings are generally unwritten. This is my office in Sterling, Massachusetts which I have owned since 1988. It has a long history dating back to 1840 which is sketchy at best. In 1850, according to a map of that period, A. Sawyer lived here. Quite possibly a relative of Mary Sawyer who's lamb followed her to school when she was nine years old (1815) here in Sterling and prompted the poem Mary Had a Little Lamb. Near the turn of the last century, a barber shop would have been found here before it moved to Main Street in 1912 where Woody's Barber Shop still operates after five generations. The building has since been owned by Albert Farwell, Charles Wiles and Harvey Davdison, all of whom have stories which are forever lost in time.
