John D. Jones House

-A A +A
1844. 16 John St.
  • (Photograph by Andrew Hope)

Turn into John Street for yet another Italianate house which, because of its elevated siting, sweeping double stair to the entrance, and large scale, commands the lower end of the street. The Lippitt-Green House began as a two-story Federal house. It was enlarged to three stories and remodeled at mid-century. Both interior (not open to the public) and exterior details show how well the more robust versions of Providence Federal forms marry with those of the Italianate.
