The Widower's Townhouse

Historic records cite repairs that occurred in 1894, 1900, 1907, and 1921. During that time, the house boasted six rooms, one bathroom, two halls, four closets, a kitchen pantry and three porches, a wood cistern, woodshed, outdoor privy and fencing. Later, sometime before 1964, the house was divided into a duplex. Despite the changes to the structure, the home's stories remain intact, having borne witness to no small amount of comings and goings, and even its fair share of tragedy...
