Ornando Remington Vose House

-A A +A
c. 1890. 3533 Mendon Rd.

Vose began as a farmer, then established a hardware store and then a florist shop before building this Queen Anne house, the largest in the area when it went up. The roof sweeps down in a long slope around a balconied dormer, then continues in a curve out over a deep porch with turned posts and balusters, which embraces two sides of the house. It is all anchored by a polygonal corner tower, with the usual Queen Anne mix of clapboard and shaped shingle siding.
