History for Sale: William Hill's Greek Revival
William H. Hill's "highly unusual variation on the Greek Revival" home, built c. 1855, is now for sale at 509 Elm Street. The listing provides a glimpse of the home's intact original elements: marble fireplaces, curved staircase with carved wooden moldings and a plaster recess, and 6/6 wooden sash windows. A unique door with a gothic top and strap hinges appears off the kitchen; it's not clear if that's original or a newer addition.
Until the arrival of Route 24 in the 1950s, Elm Street was a remote and sparsely populated area within the "Great Cedar Swamp."
