The house, which was built in 1849 for Gloucester’s notable artist Fitz Henry Lane, was slated for preservation during Gloucester’s Urban Renewal project. It was purchased by two Gloucester residents who wished to turn it into a tavern in 1964, although the Renewal Authority did take the home by eminent domain and turned it over to the Cape Ann Scientific, Literary, & Historical Association for preservation.
