123-125 NORTH MAIN ST

architectural description

Late Greek/Vernacular
Double house

historical narrative

Mill housing on both sides of street - from bridge nearly opposite Shawsheen Plaza uphill - across bridge nearly to Memorial Hall Library. This section tends to be more recent than Marland Mills housing below, from Stevens Street to bridge. This area probably served workers at Tyer Rubber Company, rather than Marland Millls. Mostly duplex or double houses, exemplifying family emphasis on employees rather than boarding houses required by early, unmarried operatives.

Owners:
Margaret A. Downs (1952)
Rita A. Downs & Helen Doherty
