Franklin Avenue

6 Franklin Avenue

Built between 1911 and 1925 in the Foursquare style with the classic clapboard 1st floor and natural brown shingle 2nd floor, highlighted by four dormers and a one-story wraparound porch supported by finely detailed columns and pedimented entrance
 
On both sides of this street, there are good examples of American Homestead and Foursquare style buildings constructed after the advent of the railroad in 1876. While the homestead house, with its open gable design, is a survival style of the classic American farmhouse, the Foursquare house was one of the first truly suburban styles in the United States.
