Duplex Mill Housing

-A A +A
c. 1915. 21–43 Ridge Rd.

This row of duplex housing dates from Henry Kendall's remodeling. These elaborate on the Colonial Revival detail of the remodeled houses on Green Street. The porches are now set toward the rear of the side walls and made large enough for summer living. They reflect a prevailing Neo-Colonial modification of precedent. Unfortunately, the whole row has been re-sided. What is today a fine allée of maples is also Kendall's doing.
