Jewett Brochure 4. Raynes House, 96 Portland Street
Built c. 1810. Olive Raynes (1833-1923), who lived and conducted school in this house, was Sarah’s teacher – possibly here, or in a building right across from Sarah’s home, where the Mobil Station now stands. Miss Raynes moved her school into this, her parents’ house, about the time Sarah left for Berwick Academy in 1861.
