The Nathan Fisher House is a historic house at 146 Oak Street in Westborough, Massachusetts.

Description and history[edit]

The wood frame Federal style house was built c. 1820 by Nathan Fisher, who had married into the locally prominent Lothrop family. Fisher operated a store, which fell into decline after the area was bypassed by the railroad in 1834. Next to the house was also built a thread factory (no longer standing) where the first steam power was used in Westborough.[2] The property was purchased by the state in 1884 and became part of the (now closed) Lyman School for Boys.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980,[1] and included in the historic district encompassing the Lyman School in 1994.[2]
