Henry Rhodes House

-A A +A
1860–1862, Alpheus C. Morse. 101 Benefit St.

Another brick and brownstone palazzo by Alpheus Morse and proof (by comparison with the others) that within a relatively proscribed formula Morse achieved considerable variety and distinction in his designs. Located just at the point on the east side of Benefit Street where the land begins to rise more steeply, the Rhodes House fits comfortably into the slope, in part because of the street-level brownstone fence, one of few such to have survived.
