Historic Burlington‚ Vermont
30 Washington Street
This gable-front house, like its neighbor to the west, is probably a two-by-two bay structure. Once again, an enclosed porch has been added to the front. This one-and-one-half story house has one-over-one double-hung sash windows present, but the window on the porch has a large single-paned window in the center. Siding and a modern roof cladding are also modifications to the original form.In 1886-87, Charles Richelieu appears at 30 North Bend as employed by L.A. Walter, a marble and granite manufacturer. The date of construction can therefore be estimated as 1886. Subsequent directories reveal Richelieu’s occupation as a stonecutter, and he is listed at this address until at least 1896.1
