77 North Winooski Avenue

Circa 1840s


By R. F. Panepinto

Built in the 1840's, this three bay wide Greek Revival building has a gable front with cornice returns. A three bay wide porch with turned posts extends across the front of the façade. The front door has three-quarter fanlights and a transom. Windows are two over two double-hung sashes symmetrically arranged and capped with stone lintels. A triangular panel with a blind pointed window occupies the gable. Brick bearing walls on a stone foundation carry a wood truss roof covered with slate shingles.

The house may have been constructed for Samuel Huntington, a bookseller who had a shop at the corner of Church and College. At present the building houses 8 apartments. (1)
