This row house, constructed c. 1885, has seven units at #94, 96, 98, 100, 102, 104, 106 Maple Street.  It is two stories with a mansard roof in the French Second Empire style.  Its distinctive slate roof is detailed with a different polychrome pattern between each of seven shed dormers.

The owner and builder of this edifice was Loomis P. Smith, the son of Horace W. Smith, a slater.  Loomis was also the 1889 constable of the city of Burlington.(1) 

(1) Battery Street Historic District, 6. 

This building appears today much as it did in McAllister’s photograph.  The slate patterns have been well preserved, even the window treatments appear not to have changed.  This preservation effort may be due, in part, to building gaining entry in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Battery Street Historic District in 1976.  The street sign has been moved to the opposite side of the street and the mailbox is no longer present.
