architectural description

4-family house form

historical narrative

Subsequent uses: apartments

Themes: architectural; community development

May have been tenement for mill workers originally, at Moses T. Stevens Andover Company, which bought the old Marland Mill Corporation in ca. 1880.
Mill tenement architecture had wrought strong influence at this period; its practicality in inexpensiveness of building and as an income property being obvious, so that by late 19th century, private parties were having tenements constructed as rental properties. This sort of architecture is significant historically, indicating the rapid growth of the town.
