Notes
Survey number HABS CT-433
Significance: This building is historically significant as an integral part of the corporate village of North Grosvenordale. Between 1864 and 1912, the Grosvenor-Dale Company, a textile producer, built mills, residences and stores, and subsidized the construction of churches and social halls in this village. Most of the workers lived in multi-unit dwellings accommodating four to twelve families. This house was one of five large tenements in a small cluster south of the mill and west of the French River; only one other house remains from this cluster. Most of the housing is in three larger concentrations known as Three Rows, Swede Village and Greek Village. In its rectangular form, general lack of embellishment, and simple stick-framing, this house typifies the company-built dwellings of North Grosvenordale.
