Images of Federal Hill
1. Image of Dwelling House from Hanover street, looking southwest. Ca 1890.A larger image
a. The house has a two-story porch with picket balustrade (both upper and lower porch), no dormers, and a moss-covered wood shingle roof. There is a one story gable addition to the south. All windows and doors have shutters, the principal massing has louvered shutters, the one-story addition has raised panel shutters. Metal gutters are present on the corners of the principal massing. Mortar color changes on the southern chimney suggest that the top of the stack was rebuilt.
b. The leading edge of a two-story weatherboarded building close to the house is present to the southeast. The building is parallel to the dwelling but appears slightly off-axis. The entrance in the gable end facing the house is at the corner, not centered and suggests a kitchen function.
c. Image shows dirt street, low board fence and no curbs. A mature evergreen stands close to the southeast corner of the principal massing of the house. Other plantings are low and scattered. Two large deciduous trees are present in the yard.
