67 Elmwood Avenue

Circa 1850


By Joe Haun

The building at 67 Elmwood Avenue is a three bay, one and one-half gabled front dwelling. It is wooden clad and exhibits the Greek Revival Style. The exact date of construction is unknown but was built circa 1850 as it appears on the 1853 Presdee and Edwards map of Burlington.(1)

The Crandall family occupied the house for seventy-five years after J. Q. Hinds vacated the premises in the early 1870's. Dr. Hiram Crandall used the building as a home and office from 1873-1899.(2) His son Frank Crandall lived from 1900 until his death in 1928. His wife, Mrs. Donna Crandall stayed here until the 1944.(3)
