Burlington 1877

What still stands from between 1869 and 1877 in Burlington, Vermont?



174-176 North Street



174-76 North Street appears much the same in plan as it did when the 1877 Bird's-Eye-View map was drawn. This three-bay gable-front house with a side porch has a two-story matching addition extending at ridge-level from the rear of this structure. The peaked lintels and first-story bay window point to Italianate influences. The entire structure is clad in wooden shingles, a later addition.

The first known resident of this house was James McGettrick, an employee of the CVRR.[1] The 1885 Burlington City Directory lists Thomas Goyette, a laborer, and Kate Goyette as residents of this address.
