|Object Type||Property File|
|Scope & Content||
Constructed ca. 1829-38; rehabilitated 1970s. Masonry house with American bond brick partly covered by a mellowed coat of lime stucco. Probably built as a paired kitchen house and slave quarters for a double tenement that has since disappeared from the front of the lot. Mrs. Hunt owned several wooden houses on this part of the street that were destroyed in the fire of 1838, and she rebuilt these structures before selling the lots in 1847.
