Fobes, J. House
1118 Pleasant St
Single Family Dwelling House
Massachusetts Historical Commission Report
This is a simple 1 story Cape with an exceptionally attractive center entrance—the front door is flanked by narrow side lights and moldings exhibit circular rosettes at the corner blocks. Above the front door is a wide lintel.
Over time this house has been owned by a J. Fobes (1830), I. Grabant (1850s), A. B. King (1879) and Edward Wilbur (1900s)—none of these owners appear in late 19th c. business directories. Built c. 1825, the village of Scotland was settled as early as 1664 and was the first English settlement in Bridgewater.
