Can you tell me whether Judge Otis P. Lord's house in Salem is still standing and the address? If not, what's there now?

Thanks for your help.



The Salem Vistor's Guide lists a residence of Lord's:

"The North church was set off from the First church in 1772, and
its first meeting-house was built in that year on the southern corner
of North and Lynde streets. This was superseded by the present
edifice of the society on Essex street, in 1835. For twenty-five years
it was used for manufacturing purposes. The house now standing
on the spot was once the residence of Justice Otis P. Lord of the
supreme judicial court."

There is an older property at the southern side of the intersection. I'm a Salem resident, have friends residing on Lynde Street, and regularly drive past the house location (as it's described), or park next to it, when spaces on Lynde Street are in short supply.

Hope this helps.
