Newlyweds Capt. Amos and Rhoda (Winsor) Brown built the house at 341 Washington Street about 1786 on land that was owned by Rhoda’s father, Samuel Winsor, Sr.  The Browns lived in the modest gambrel-roofed house for ten years, and it was here that the first three of their six children were born. In 1796, the Browns built a larger house and sold the cape to shipwright Zenith Wadsworth and his wife, Mahala (Winsor) Wadsworth. Mahala and Rhoda were first cousins. The house remained in the Wadsworth family until 1915.
