Dr. Calvin Tilden lived in the Gad Hitchcock house in Hanson and practiced in that town and in Hanover. Gad Hitchcock, the first minister in Hanson, was a clergyman of sterling character, patriotic and fearless, and an ancestor of Dr. Tilden. The latter was admitted to the Massachusetts Medical Society in 1810. He died in 1832, aged fifty-seven years. The historic house in Hanson where he resided is still standing.
