Tenement

-A A +A
c. 1830. 301–303 Hanover St.

Hanover Street is architecturally distinguished for its concentrated development between the 1780s and the early 1900s and its almost textbook examples of styles and house types. Among them are a number of “tenements” or, to us today, double houses, such as these two three-bay structures with Flemish bond brickwork and sandstone sills. The detailing is Greek Revival.
