Dorsey-Jones House

Dorsey built this house, on Nonotuck Street in Florence, in 1849 or 1850. He sold it in 1852, moving to another house nearby. Thomas H. Jones, a nationally renowned fugitive slave and anti-slavery activist, bought the house in 1858, living there until 1859. The house was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
