George S. Harwood House and Stable
14 Ivanhoe StreetCharles Brigham designed this house and stable for George S. Harwood in 1886. According to the Sturgis and Brigham dissolution agreement, the house cost approximately $30,000 ($300 commission), the stable cost $5,500 ($110 commission) and the inside finish was estimated to cost $4,000 ($400 commission).
Year Built: 1886
Year Demolished: 1930s
Unfortunately, George Harwood died in 1894 and left a wife, Ellen, who survived until 1928. Thereafter, their son George took over the property. The house was likely demolished sometime in the 1930s as it is no long on the plot.
