Buena Vista, Roxbury, Mass.

PC001.02.01.USMA.2540.0290.001 (RS314)

Description

An exterior view of Buena Vista, the mansion of Isaac Fenno and his wife Almira Blake Fenno on Buena Vista Street (also known as Buena Vista Avenue) in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Trees partially hide the house, which is set on a small hill. The view seems to be from the house across the street as the gate of the picket fence in the foreground is open toward the camera. The three-story Queen Anne home has several turreted towers and a side porch with balcony. The stable can be seen behind the house on the left. Isaac Fenno was a pioneer clothier in the ready-made clothing field.
