123 North Winooski Avenue

Circa 1840s


By R. F. Panepinto

This two and one-half story, three bay wide, pedimented gable front structure shows more detail than many of its neighbors. Brick load bearing walls rest on a stone foundation. The front porch with turned posts and brackets is a later addition and runs the width of the façade. A covered one bay wide porch is atop this porch and above the front door which is on the left of the façade. Windows are one over one double hung sashes symmetrically arranged. A pointed louvered panel is in the gable. The roof system is wood truss with slate shingles. A two story bay window, also a later addition, graces the southern façade. Although one of the older structures in the neighborhood, little is known of the residents until Eugene Smalley rented it. (1)
