Mill Housing

-A A +A
Possibly 1890–1900. 113–151 East Ave.

West of Levy's house, East Avenue dips past a row of minimally altered Colonial Revival duplexes erected by William and Ernest Tinkham. They are starkly looming, with broad stretches of clapboard wall between widespaced, sparsely detailed windows. Attenuated framing accentuates their severe aspect. So does the plainness of their centered porches, with roofs supported on spindly turned supports sheltering paired entrances. Unusually, the upper windows cut through a broad, frieze-like band under the eaves. These houses are the more interesting because of their proximity to housing built under Levy's aegis in the New Village immediately opposite.
