The Country House, The Greater Ville

This house is much older than the surrounding early Twentieth Century “suburban” houses that were built around here. The city’s records say 1884, but as I often tell people, I strongly suspect that city officials started filling in dates of construction in the mid-1880s for older buildings, as I have documentation of many structures that are much older than their listings of 1883-85 dates in city records. But nonetheless, it is a wonderful survivor of when this was out in the country. It sits just east of Newstead on Ashland.
