Public Hearing to Help Decide Fate of Prescott House

Groton Historical Commission will have its next regular meeting on Wednesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. in Groton Town Hall. The first topic on the agenda will be Prescott House preservation. Prescott House is located at 170 Old Ayer Road in Groton, and was originally built c. 1791 by Dr. Oliver Prescott, Jr., a prominent physician in Groton at that time. It is now part of a larger property owned by Groton Hill Music Center. The current owners have proposed that the historically significant house be demolished.
