Family History

This was the home of the Stout Family from 1911 at least until the 1940s. Richard Stout (1850-1930) was Treasurer of  the Equitable Powder Company before his retirement. He lived here with his wife Mary (1852-1944) his three adult daughters, Emilie, Alice and Helen Stout, and a maid. All three daughters were teachers in a private school. Alice and Helen appear to have married late in life sometime before 1940, while Emilie remained a spinster and continued to live in the home after her parents’ deaths, along with a maid and a lodger.

    2021 tax was over $6300. That’s REALLY high!

    Such a shame. This house has more character left than most its age.

    The most beautiful thing about this house is that the woodwork hasn’t been painted! This would be a stunning restoration.
