On March 18, 1909, Katherine Tingley purchased the former Dexter House at 201 High St. Tingley was the leader of an esoteric religious movement called theosophy and planned to establish a theosophist school in Newburyport, where she grew up. After burglaries and fire on the property, Tingley sold it in 1915.
