Title 56 Church Street (James Veree House)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1794-1796. James Veree, a French Huguenot carpenter, purchased a parcel containing the lots where 56, 58, and 60 Church Street stand in 1754. Sold in 1792 by James Veree Jr., the purchaser, the widow Margaret Daniel, built a house on the site between 1794 and 1796. The house retains its early piazza containing a notable door architrave with engaged and fluted Doric columns supporting a Classical Revival frieze.

File contains brief narrative history, presumably written for the owner in 1967; copy of site plan and elevations (existing and proposed), presumably submitted with 2002 BAR application.
