INVENTORY FORM B CONTINUATION SHEET LEXINGTON 4 PAUL REVERE RD. <br /> MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL COMMISSION Area(s) Form No. <br /> 220 MORRISSEY BOULEVARD,BOSTON,MASSACHUSETTS 02125 <br /> 0 2257 <br /> "The area including Revolutionary Road and parts of Constitution Road, Massachusetts Avenue, Ross Road and Paul <br /> Revere Road was originally laid out as 'Wellington Estates' in 1937 by the Ross Realty Corporation[,] although construction <br /> did not begin until 1941. The subdivision plan (Plan number 294 of 1941) shows that it was laid out adjacent to the <br /> `proposed circumferential highway' which would become Rt. 128. The neighborhood reflects an early local phase of the <br /> Cape Cod house construction that intensified in Lexington during the post-World War II building boom." (LEX.AW) <br /> Wellington Estates encompassed thirty lots, obviously intended for modest, affordable housing. About half the homes in this <br /> small subdivision were designed by the firm of Royal Barry Wills. 4 Paul Revere Road occupies one of the lots on the 1937 <br /> plan, but its proportions and details do not seem consistent with other buildings in the subdivision that have been identified as <br /> Royal Barry Wills' designs. The first known occupants of this house, in 1945, were Charles D. Allen, an electrician, and his wife <br /> Mildred. Charles and Mildred continued to reside in the house in 1955; by 1965, Mildred was living alone here. <br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES <br /> Historic maps and atlases: Walling 1853; Beers 1875; Walker 1889; Stadly 1898; Walker 1906; Sanborn 1908, 1918, 1927, <br /> 1935, 1935/1950. <br /> Lexington Comprehensive Cultural Resources Survey, Period and Area Summaries. <br /> Accessed Jul 23, 2015. <br /> Lexington Directories: 1899, 1906, 1908-09, 1918, 1922, 1928, 1934, 1936. <br /> Lexington Historical Commission.
