historical narrative

Themes: architectual, community development

This house was built in the 1930's as a Colonial reproduction. The property was sold in 2005 and divided. The house was moved in the Spring of 2006 and turned 180 degrees to face east. The garage and bedroom above were razed and new wings added at the new site.

1980 surveyor description: Very simple design highlighted by center chimney and entry vestibule, elegant windows, impressive, isolated setting. Possibly remodeling of earlier building, or a good reproduction.
