Background
This is another example of colonial revival, designed by David Postle, and built for approximately $7,000. The original owner was Charles Cornell, whose brother, Frank, lived across the street at No. 33. The two men operated a creamery together. In traditional colonial revival style, the first floor interior of this home is quite spacious, with a large reception hall, library, parlor, dining room and kitchen.
