Description

Two, ones story historic houses now connected perpendicularly. Both have hipped roofs. Section 1 runs the length of Harbor street along the south of the lot. The central portion reveals a brick and cut stone retaining wall which likely ran the length of the house. Both sections have since been replaced with concrete block. There are no windows along the south except for two small wood louvered ventilation openings. The main structure (section 2) runs along the west along Falmouth Street. The structure is painted cream. A board door, and board casement opens on the south. A double board door and two casements opens on the west and two casements on the north.
