Clergyman John Harvard arrives from England, is admitted as an inhabitant and freeman, and becomes Teacher in the Charlestown church.  He builds his house on Country Road (later Market and now Main Street) next to Gravel Lane.  The site is now Harvard Mall.  Gravel Lane (remnants still visible) was so named due to the gravel dug from the hill in the town’s earliest days.  Behind Harvard’s house, his orchard extended up the hill.
