84 North Winooski Avenue

Circa 1840s


By R. F. Panepinto

A post and beam, clapboard clad, three bay wide example of the Greek Revival style, this house rests on a stone foundation. A blind window above the pedimented porch maintains the symmetry of the windows on the second floor. The symmetrically arranged windows are one over one double-hung sashes. The wood truss, gable front roof with cornice returns is covered by slate. This building has seen extensive additions to the rear.

The 1869 Worley map identifies the owner as Oliver Beaupre who may also have been the builder. (1) The house remained in the Beaupre family until his grandchildren sold it in 1937. The structure has since been divided into apartments. (2)
