Near 255 Bunker Hill Road, Oswego NY | Officially Marked Monument
Mary Edwards Walker was born in a house on Bunker Hill Road outside Oswego. It served as her lifelong residence whenever she resided in Oswego. Walker died at the nearby home of the Dwyers, neighbors who cared for her during her final illness.
The house was lost to fire many years after Walker’s death. No trace of the structure remains. A historical marker was placed on the vacant lot in 1977.
This 1916 photo shows Mary Edwards
Walker, seen from behind, making her way
down an Oswego street. The photo was
probably intended to demonstrate how
routinely Edwards and her garb had been
accepted by the townspeople.
