If you are traveling east on Route 28 from Harwich into Chatham, this house is the first house you see on the right, just after the cemetery. This is where Captain Walker and his wife, Louisa Eldredge Walker, lived and raised their two sons, Frederick B. Walker and Henry M. Walker, Jr. I don't know when this house was built. I remember seeing a news article indicating that Henry and his wife remodeled it around 1880, so I believe that they did not build it. In the novel I leave Captain Walker in Harwich Port, but in fact he lived in Chatham in his adult years. When Henry and Louisa went to Florida in 1893 they kept this house, and Louisa (who unlike the fictional wife of Captain Walker in my novel, did not die young) returned to this house in the summers. She owned this house up until her death in 1918. Sadly, their younger son, Henry M. Walker, Jr., was lost at sea in September, 1891, on a fishing trip off Nova Scotia. The schooner, Albert Woodbury, was last heard from when it stopped in at Halifax for supplies, days before a storm blew in. I believe that his father-in-law, Thomas Sullivan, also lost his life in that incident. Louisa Walker left this house to her granddaughter, Louise I. Walker, daughter of Henry M. Walker, Jr. She never married and owned a general store in Cotuit. When I was a kid, my grandmother gave me a large box full of old postcards that came from that store, and that's how my fascination with old postcards began.
