Hagan, Peter House
579 Oak St
Single Family Dwelling House
Massachusetts Historical Commission Report
This is a simple 1 story ironworker's cottage with a south shed addition. Vaguely Italianate in sensibility, it features a front porch with slatwork balusters and turned posts. The old barn on the property is characterized by decaying, weathered clapboards, broad gables and a low belvedere at the roof's center.
This house was built c. 1875 for Peter Hagan, iron worker—presumably an employee of the nearby Bridgewater Iron Mfg. Co. on High St. By the early 1900's a Mrs. J. O'Hern lived here. Together with its barn and landscape feature this house provides a glimpse of a late non-company owned ironworker's cottage.
