Charles Brigham Barn, Garage and Shed
North Beacon Street, between Ladd and Irving StreetsBrigham designed a barn, garage and shed to be leased to William Emerson. These buildings would have stood at the northeast corner on North Beacon Street between Ladd and Irving Streets. The barn was proposed to hold 20 horses, the garage was for “automobile trucks” and the shed was for “wagons.” Due to local opposition of a barn in a residential neighborhood, the plans were abandoned.
Year Built: 1915
No pictures of the proposed barn, garage and shed are known to exist.
