10. Wainer Early Home Site

1228 Russell’s Mills Road, Dartmouth. Home and business site of Michael and Mary Wainer (1776-1792). This is now the site of Davoll’s Store. Michael Wainer (c. 1748-1815) married Mary Slocum Cuffe (1753-1804), daughter of Cuff and Ruth Slocum, in 1772. They purchased this property from Giles Russell in 1776, resided here and probably operated a leather tannery and shoe-making business until 1792 when they sold the property to William Howland a merchant from New Bedford.
