Grinnel House - 1970 Tour, 2003 Tour, Walking Tour


This 1889 Shingle Style home was built by Charles Grinnel, the president of Grinnel-Rowe Insurance Company. He and his wife Abigail raised 3 daughters here. One of the mostinteresting architectural details is the second story copper-topped Juliet balcony. In 1995 when the current owner purchased the property there was a huge, overgrown Cedar tree covered the entire porch and stood taller than the house. Two days after moving in she had the tree removed.
