History

On September 14, 2000 the Reed-Wood Place became the first privately owned property
in Littleton MA to be accepted for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The property is significant as a rare intact 19th century homestead peculiar to New England described as "big house, little house, back house, barn" The first owners were Mary Gardner Reed and Isaac Reed. She was the daughter of Revolutionary War General Isaac Gardner. From 1807 to 1920 the home had 7 owners before Rose and George Wood bought it. It appears it was former owner John Robinson who completed the L-shaped configuration adding the back house perpendicular to the existing construction to reach the barn. The barn was likely constructed by Robinson. The property remained in the Wood estate through the early 1990's and stood vacant for many years. At this time there was intense public opposition to a planned demolition and the structure was preserved. The home was purchased in 1996 by Kathleen and Paul Tiernan. The new owners undertook a certified rehabilitation of the property. The Reed-Wood place perpetuates historical function combining residential ownership with the practice of a trade or profession in the commercial center of the community.
