Winooski Avenue changed greatly during the period 1830 to 1853.
The area of what is now North Winooski Avenue between Pearl and
North Streets had one possible building identified for the 1830
project. By 1853, twenty one structures had been built that remain
standing today. If you include the four structures on Grant Street,
the count is twenty five. This is indicative of the rapid growth
occurring in the Burlington area in this period. The residences
constructed on North Winooski Avenue were for Burlington's burgeoning
middle class. By the turn of the century, this area was changing
along with the rest of the Old North End. Working class families
replaced middle class merchants and professionals. Many of the
residences were divided into apartments. This trend continues
today with many of the buildings a shadow of their former selves.
