Seabury–Richmond–Burchard House

-A A +A
c. 1840, mid-20th c. 31 South of Commons Rd.

Next door to the Seaborn Mary importation is yet a third Richmond family venture in remodeling. Joshua B. Richmond bought this house from a Seabury descendant in 1915 when its four north bays comprised the extent of a rather plain mid-nineteenth-century house. His daughter Corinne Richmond Burchard added the classical vestibule, the two south bays, and the trellised side porch.
