This modest mansard-roof house stood on Groton Street, immediately behind number 54 Dexter Street, from the time of its construction until the last years of the 20th century. Its predecessor on this site was a slightly larger scale and much deteriorated Second Empire house that was demolished to accommodate this house.
Owned from the middle of the 19th century until the mid-1930s by a succession of Fuller-family members, this house had more than 20 different owners between the mid-1930s and 1997 was when it was acquired by the Providence Revolving Fund. The Providence Revolving Fund’s intervention on this site saved and preserved this house and provided the house next door, also included on this tour, with more ample garden space.
