    Wow this house has a lot of potential. Ceiling looks low in the reception hall no?
    Another bottle of Siding-Be-Gone to expose some possible ornamental treats underneath. Look at the sink in the little hall under the stairs. WOW.
    Fantastic stained glass in the door.
    Interesting that the sliding doors don’t seem to have handles or pulls??

    I think a different exterior color would do wonders for the house. And yeah, where are the rest of the photos?? I’m kind of interested in this one!

    In catching up on genealogy, I recently learned some members of my extended family lived in this house from about the mid-20s to the 50s or there abouts. It may sound odd, but it thrills me to see the interior as well as the original exterior of this house and think about their lives there.

      They must have bought it from the Lazelles – Etta died in 1923. Riley?

        Yes, William & Elizabeth Riley, he died in 1934 but it would appear she & some of their children lived there at least until 1950 – I haven’t been able to find a death record for her but have found newspaper articles with family members’ names with the address thru the 40s.

          Best I can do online, which you may have already:
          Massachusetts Death Index
          Elizabeth Mary Reardon Riley died at Springfield in 1946, Book 86, Page 522.
          You can get the death cert. for a few bucks from the state Vital Records.
