Title 152 Broad Street (Bird-Tiedeman House)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed 1885. John Henry Devereux, architect. William Bird, a dealer in paint, glass, and other supplies, lived on lower Meeting Street but built this house in 1885. The house reflects the transition between the Italianate and Queen Anne styles, apparent in its double-tiered front bay window, curved piazzas with saw-cut--patterned balustrades, and intermediary cross gable. Early photographs depict the original polychrome paint treatment of this building, as well as the lost detailing of its rear carriage house, formerly surmounted by a cupola. Bird sold the house to the German grocer Otto Tiedeman, relative of other German families on Broad Street, in 1889.

File contains newspaper article (DYKYC); Rosen and Associates inspection report (1994).
