Description:
View of #7 Elm St., built for the Rev. William H. Randall (ca. 1866). The house is a Greek Revival. William H. Randall was the grandson of a wealthy Mystic merchant, Jedediah Randall, and the son of William Pitt Randall, one of the founders of the Reliance Machine Co. and partner in a whaling firm. William married Mary Fish in 1874, and was very active in the Union Baptist Church. He later became an ordained minister and moved to a church in Vermont. From 1886 to 1903, the house was the home of a popular author and poet, Ida Whipple Benham, and for many years was owned by the family of the Rev. George H. Miner.
