The only Ward family home remaining on Ward’s Point today was built circa 1830.  This house belonged to Caleb Ward’s granddaughter, Hannah, the wife of boatman Samuel Wood.  In 1850, Wood sold the waterfront portion of his property to William H. Rutan, and later sold the house to Theodore Leven, a Swedish immigrant.  The Leven family occupied the house for nearly sixty years.
