Former president Franklin Pierce once had a home here, but the building was destroyed during the 1980s.
After the death of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865, an angry mob gathered here to demand an answer as to why Pierce was not flying an American flag in memoriam to the slain president.
There is a small granite marker detailing the significance of the site. All that is left of the home Pierce inhabited until his death in October of 1869, is two stone staircases to a vacant lot.
