- ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and <br /> evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) <br /> This is a vernacular, side hall plan, facade-bay-window house which <br /> has been dressed up with a molded eave with brackets at the corners; dentils <br /> on the bay window; and above all, a porch embellished with turned posts, a <br /> Chippendale balustrade, and segmentally-arched friezes between the posts. <br /> The frieze exhibits stippled circle design at each end. Dentils also trim <br /> the porch eave. The entrance is recessed and the porch wraps around to join <br /> a small ell to the left side. The stipple design is repeated on the brackets <br /> at the eaves. This stipple treatment has not been noted elsewhere in Lexington. <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 /> This house was built in 1885 by David A. Tuttle, a prominent nineteenth <br /> century Lexington builder, for Mrs. Ellen B. Lane. Mrs. Lane continued to <br /> occupy the house until about the turn of the century. In 1903 it was owned <br /> by Fred W. Talcott, the apothecary who owned the house at 24 Parker Street. <br /> (Sold h� Late l A, ree, M;N✓Jt -/1/Iao <br /> 1903 <br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES (name of publication, author, date and publisher) <br /> Tuttle papers.
