The Ebenezer Richards House (1769) received the Dover Historical Society's Seventh Preservation Award, March 2017. The original Richards House was a saltbox, with the east room and hallway with a lean-to attached to the rear section. Original additions were completed in 1823. The house is known to have a secret chamber in the chimney, accessible by stairs and formerly used as a hiding space during the French and Indian War. Today the house has incorporated modern amenities while maintaining its original character. The 7 bedroom home sits on 2.71 acres, overlooks the Charles River in a convenient location on the north side of Dover. The property includes a brick stand along cottage, vine covered trellis adjacent to stone patio, 3 bay garage, chicken coop and stunning gardens. Minutes to Needham and Wellesley centers.
