The house at 90 Hopedale Street is listed in the National Register Nomination as the
    Hatch-Northrop house. Considering its age (c.1860) and location, it seems almost
    certain that Hatch was George O. Hatch, a member of the Hopedale Community, and
    that the second owner, Northrop, was James Northrop, principal inventor of the
    Northrop loom. It is presently the home of Todd and Patricia Travis-Sawyer and family.

    The William Lapworth house (c. 1875) at 85 Adin Street was the home of the
    inventor of elastic webbing. Lapworth had a factory in Hopedale and another in
    Milford. At the time of the tour in 2007, it was the home of Alan and Theresa Ryan.
    The Frank and Martha Dutcher house at 34 Adin Street has undergone an
    extensive renovation over the last several years, converting it back to a single
    family home after operating as the Adin Manor nursing home for some years.
    Dutcher was the son of Warren Dutcher, an inventor of a loom part, who lived
    at the corner of Adin and Dutcher streets. Frank Dutcher became president of
    the Draper Company and was an important member of the Hopedale Park
    Commission in its early years. It is the home of Jason and Susan Bloomberg
    and family. Click on the picture to see "before, during and after" photos.

    This home at 11 Williams Street, once the residence of George Otis Draper, was long known as The Larches.
    In 1909, Draper sold the house to his aunt, Hannah Thwing Osgood Draper  Shortly after she bought it, it
    burned. The house that's there now, shown in the photo, is what she had built to replace the one she had
    bought. It is now the site of Crossroads Clubhouse, Which is described as, "a rehabilitative community
    offering opportunities and support in employment, education, and housing for adults with mental illness.
    Following the 'Clubhouse Model' of rehabilitation, the program emphasizes work, participation, and choice. A
    Clubhouse is a place where people come to rebuild their lives, The participants are called members, not
    patients, and the focus is on their strengths, not their illness. Members build their confidence and self esteem
    by learning the skills necessary to lead productive and satisfying lives."

    The house at 190 Dutcher Street was originally the home of Charles Nutting. According to the 1904
    town directory, Nutting was, "general superintendent and director of Draper Company. House Dutcher
    1/2 mile out." In 2007, it was the home of Thomas Wesley and Rebecca Wild-Wesley and family.
