Saunders-Ward House (1843)

Two matching adjacent houses built in 1843, at 121 and 123 Federal Street in Salem, are considered to be Salem’s finest examples of domestic vernacular Greek Revival architecture. One of these houses, the Saunders-Ward House at 123 Federal Street, was constructed by builder Jonathan F. Carleton for Robert F. Saunders (d. 1846), a shoe merchant. It was next owned by Andrew Ward, sea captain and merchant, whose descendents lived there until 1916.
