Crowley Street to Lake View Cemetery

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
