ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and <br /> evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) <br /> One of the best preserved of the Meriam Hill houses, this house has a <br /> number of interesting touches: the curving in of the wall on either side of the <br /> angled windows in the facade gable; the use of patterned shingles (rows of <br /> staggered butt or rounded shingles alternating with plain ones) ; a round-headed <br /> window on the second level; and a Chippendale balustrade on the porch. All of <br /> the exterior finishes of the house and carriage house appear to be original. <br /> HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state <br /> history and how the building relates to the development of the community.) <br /> The house was built by Herbert L. Wellington, a salesman with Jones, <br /> McDuff-ee and Stratton of Boston. The house remained in the Wellington family <br /> until after 1906. <br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES (name of publication, author, date and publisher) <br /> David A.
