INVENTORY FORM CONTINUATION SHEET CaMILMity: Form No: <br /> MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL CCMISSION Lexington 369 <br /> Office of the Secretary, Boston <br /> Property Name: 12 Oakland Street <br /> Indicate each item on inventory form which is being continued below. <br /> ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE <br /> This is a well preserved example of the Queen Anne style with a number <br /> of inventive touches. Features include a gambrel-roofed central pavilion with <br /> palladian window, offset second-level wall plane, pedimented portico and <br /> diagonally placed windows at the corners flanking the portico. There is a <br /> three-sided oriel on the right-hand side second level. The design is tied <br /> together by the use of patterned shingles (staggered butt, and some semicircular) <br /> on the second story. There are clapboards below. The use of patterned shingles <br /> with clapboards is characteristic of Lexington buildings of the 1880s and 1890s. <br /> This is perhaps the most prominent use of patterned shingles on a Meriam Hill <br /> house of the period. <br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES <br /> 1094 Directory <br /> 1899 Directory <br /> 1906 Directory <br /> Staple to Inventory form at bottom <br />
