Solomon, remained at Stony Brook and in 1762, owned the saw mill at that location. This land was in Wrentham until 1870 when the town of Norfolk was established from Franklin and Medway. Today, we know this area of land as the Audubon Society's Stony Brook Nature Center.

The Solomon Blake House
97 North Street
This structure, built in 1762, was one of the first full cellar houses to be built in Norfolk. The house has five working fireplaces downstairs and two up. The upstairs suffered fire damage during a blaze in 1925. The Blake family were among some of the first settlers in the Norfolk area and Solomon operated a sawmill on Stony Brook Pond just across the street.
