Village Green

-A A +A
  • Village Green, Community Building (Pierre Courtois)

The village green is impressive for its space, but the architecture lacks distinction. The dominant feature is Grace Baptist Church (1949–1950) with its impressive spire. But the Colonial Revival building lacks inspiration. Also on the green at Dover Street are the half-timbered Community Building (1926, Henry Grant Morse), with diamond-paned casement windows, and the Georgian Revival Tuckahoe Women's Club (1954, C. W. Huff; 4215 Dover Street).
