Triple Brick Museum

-A A +A
1874. 313 East John St. (southeast of the Adam Stephen House and adjacent to it)

This three-unit town house row, also close to the railroad tracks, stands six bays long and three stories tall, the first floor of stone, the upper two of brick. Paired windows with slightly arched segmental heads, a corbeled brick cornice, and a porch are the sole concessions to architectural refinement on the severely plain building. Built as tenements for railroad workers, the row is typical of urban housing of its period. It is now a museum of local history, augmenting the Adam Stephens House museum next door.
