Judge George Frost House

Judge Frost house.jpg

119 Locust Street

This house was built in 1831 and is said to have been the first house contracted for by builder Nathaniel Twombly. It has the brick ends and four chimneys which are a modification of the Federal style peculiar to this period. It was a sanitarium in its early days. Judge George Frost of the Dover Municipal Court purchased the house from Samuel Wheeler in 1883. In the days of the gundalows, the Frost family had been very active with that form of important river transportation. Judge Frost had three daughters who were actively involved in the Red Cross during both World Wars. They were engaged in other social work as well.
