The following is from the Historic Buildings Inventory as revised in 1985:

Physical appearance:   This simple rectangular Colonial Revival house has an elegantly detailed front porch.

Significance:  This is a dignified vernacular interpretation of Colonial revival style. It was probably built by the first owner, Thomas Warrior, a carpenter. He and his wife Linda occupied it until the mid–1920s. From 1924 until 1939 its owner was Albert J. Hettinger, who engaged in real estate and insurance affairs. During the 1940s it was sometimes rented, sometimes vacant, and it was acquired by John P. and Madeleine B. Slattery in 1949.


This house was built in 1906 and is a Category 4 on the Historic Buildings Inventory. The builder might have been Thomas Warrior. The property measures 50 by 150 feet.
