Notes
Survey number HABS MA-1087
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-298).
Significance: This is a fine specimen of a Cape Cod "double house," and Dr. Ernest Allen Connally, HABS Architect and historian, in his survey of Cape Cod houses in the summer of 1959, reported that this was locally considered to be the best example on Cape Cod. He found that the house has been carefully restored and preserved by the owner, who has been on this project, among other things, since 1919. The house is located within the area of the proposed Cape Cod National Sea Shore.
