Burlington 1877


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



40 Allen Street


Opposite 19 Allen Street sits this building. It too was built circa 1873. Buildings such as these were commonly built to house working class people and their families and can be seen throughout the North End and other neighborhoods close to the waterfront. The first owner was Phillip Barber who, coincidentally, owned a barber shop on Church Street[1]. Today this building contains two apartments. Although the exterior finishes are quite different than what they may have originally been, the integrity of the house is still intact and it footprint is similar to that of the building shown on the 1890 Hopkins Map.
