ARCHITECTURAL IMPORTANCE:

Built c. 1875 this Queen Ann house's original resident is unknown.  It
was built on the site of a now demolished house owned by C.S.Abbott, a pin maker who owned C.S.Abbott & Company.

By 1892, John Wright, an electrical plater at the American Pin Company was its owner.
This house retains its original detail including a second story porch with turned posts and rounded arched window in gable end, and contributes to the late nineteenth-century Hillside Avenue streetscape.
Editor's Note:
It is interesting to note that both this residence and its sister residence next door (53 Hillside) have the same first and second floor layouts.
Both were built as two family dwellings, though today both are private one family homes.

NOTABLE FEATURES OF THE BUILDING:
This two and one-half story, two bay side entry Queen Anne house has a three sided bay tot he south.  The ground floor porch with gabled entry and open bay to the west has chamfered posts, spindle work balusters and spool work valance.
Above the entry a second story balcony with splayed balustrade, has turned posts and a spool work valance and supports a belled shed roof and cantilever of gable end of western bay.  The Western eave of cantilevered gable is supported by spool work with ball pendant at corner.
The paired front roof gables have paneled barge boarding, and projecting molded courses mid-way up the gable.  The Western gable contains round arched window with Shavian border, and main gable has rectangular window with Shavian bands at the meeting rail.
To the south, the gable and contains an arched window and pendant finial.
