Town Hill Street is renamed Harvard Street on November 7 in honor of the bicentennial of Harvard College.

Dexter Row, consisting of six elegant brick row houses facing Thompson Square, is built by Shadrach Varney, former head of the blacksmith department in the Navy Yard. (Only three of the Dexter Row houses survive.)

The Union Block, a group of three fine Greek Revival row houses (which still survive), is built on Main Street at the corner of Union Street.
