PYNCHON-POWELL HOME, Adams Street

The Powells have lived in their ca. 1835 house longer than any other of the previous owners and for that reason prefer to call it Powell Place. Lee Harless, Jr. captured this Adams Street home in the summer of 1977.

Another story was Mrs. Pynchon was quite ill and asked her husband if he'd ever thought of whom he would marry should she die. Mr. Pynchon said, "Yes," he had thought of the matter and "thought it would be Mary Larned Newman." It was said Mrs. Pynchon had a rapid recovery!
