House at 38 Bennett Street

Significance: This home was built in 1690 by the Bennett family. A great deal has occurred to this First Period house, but its origins are still there. The Bennetts built good sturdy houses as evidenced by the fact that many of their Manchester homes have survived o this time. It was a simple house with the traditional south-facing door, perhaps convenient for watching over the Bennett grist mill. That has given way now for a door facing the road instead of the sun. Designations: National Historic District (1990).
