 The Dunmore House was located on Bakers Court, and the caption on the back of the photograph says that he drove stage coach from Lower Mills to Boston. 37 1/2 cents each way.

The history of the First Methodist Church p. 42 mentions that the house stood on the site where the Forbes Mill was later built. “On the site of the Forbes Mill stood the Dunmore Estate,--the Dunmore house and stable of Charles and Archibald Dunmore, who ran the stage to Boston.”
