Driving down Falmouth Street by the university and this caught my eye. Something intriguing and not quite right at the same time.
It doesn’t sit very comfortably on it’s lot. The first floor fenestration doesn’t make sense. Then there is the goofy ‘Juliet’ balcony.
What if the first floor was originally a garage?
Makes a bit more sense. Silas B Adams purchased the lot in 1910 and appears to have built right away. The 1924 tax record shows an age of 16 years. Current tax records says built in 1910. Looking at the 1924 record in depth, I am inclined to say it was being used for horses at that time.
