Benjamin Allen - 304 Wister Street

 


 
Benjamin Allen lived in a brick house at  304 Wister Street. He lived next door to his brother and business partner, John Allen. The driveway on the left of the house led to a wood greenhouse at the back of the property. Right in his backyard was his manufacturing company, Sherwood Knitting Mills.
