PC001.02.01.USMA.2540.0050.002 (RS312)

Description

A view of the front façade of the Greek Revival Morse House at 145 Walnut Avenue in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Two-story Ionic columns support a pediment punctuated with a window surmounted by a fanlight. A picket fence on top of a stone wall fronts the property. A sign hangs on a tree in the front yard: "This estate for sale by Cruff & Byrne, 2355 Washington Street." Two women walk past the house. This may be the house of commercial merchant Sidney B. Morse, who "began poor" and had a personal wealth of $200,000 according to a reference source.
