4 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN MARCH 18-24, 2021 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION Owners of the LEWIS TOWER HOUSE on Mendon Road have found a buyer after an open house last Saturday where 200 people showed up to see the restored home. CUMBERLAND – The owners of the 1825 Lewis Tower House at 2211 Mendon Road have accepted an offer "well above the asking price" of $499,000, said their real estate agent Brendan Duckworth this week. Duckworth said about 200 people came through the home for an open house last Saturday, March 13, with an estimated 75 percent of those simply wanting to get a look at the inside and not interested in buying it. But of those roughly 50 people who were interested, five of them submitted offers, he said, and the owners accept- ed one of them. Duckworth wasn't disclosing the final sale price or the buyer this week, but said he was very pleased with how the whole process played out. The Breeze reported last week on plans by Paula Keefe and Jeff Polucha to sell the home after restoring it fol- lowing more than 30 years of it being vacant. Long a source of curiosity along Mendon Road, the home is recognizable for its unusual southern- style two-story front porch, and local preservationists had long advocated for saving it.

CORRECTION LINCOLN – Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Lincoln Memorial Day Parade will not occur in May this year, with the committee planning this year's event preparing to put on a parade in October instead. Memorial Day Parade Co-Director Philip Gould said the committee met last week and agreed to push the parade to Columbus Day weekend. By that time, Gould said, he's hopeful that most, if not all, Lincoln residents will be vaccinated against COVID- 19, and that restrictions on gatherings will be lifted. The parade would by no means be a Columbus Day parade, Gould said, adding that it's being planned for the long weekend to better accommodate families.
