North Willard Street Burlington Vermont

North Willard Street runs from Pearl Street to Archibald Street in Burlington’s Old North End. In Burlington it is also both VT Routes 2 and 7. The street consists of a variety of single-family, often Victorian homes, and multi-unit properties. Because it lays in Burlington’s older neighborhood, homes on North Willard were built in the early years of the twentieth century.

 

Significant homes on North Willard Street

11 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 This house is an excellent example of the Queen Anne style which was still popular in the opening years of the 20th century, and which is found in quantity on North Willard Street.  It is very rich in its detailing, particularly in the bay window and on the porch.  It was built for Celia Arbuckle, widow of Thomas Arbuckle, who made cigars and did a large wholesale tobacco business in Burlington for many years.

17 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 Possibly built by developer/builder Paul Chausse on speculation, this Colonial Revival/Queen Anne house is in very good condition, is typical of the residences built at that time, and is an excellent representative of its style.  The first owner was James Mitchell, partner in the men’s clothing firm of B. Turk and Son, a landmark store in downtown Burlington for half a century.  The house and its owner typified the affluence of the commercial middle class, which was the predominant force behind the development of this neighborhood.

21 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 Like 17 North Willard, this house was most likely built by Chausse.  Although it now has aluminum siding, the unmistakably Colonial Revival/Queen Anne character of the house is very much in evidence.  The interior of the house has the original woodpanelling, and a few built-in cases.  The stained glass and tracery windows are noteworthy, and the entire house is well-kept.  Probably built on speculation by developer/builder Paul Chausse, the first owner was George Humphrey,  “commercial traveller”.

28  North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 This excellent example of Shingle Style/Colonial Revival architecture is similar to 83 North Willard Street and 179 Loomis Street, and was probably built by the same firm.  While maintaining the scale and proportions of the other houses on North Willard Street, this house departs from them in style, with the 2 pointed arch gable ends, and the almost Jacobethan decorative treatment of the facade.  It was built for Charles H. Mower, a clerk for the Burlington Grocery Co. (wholesale), of which his father was president.

39 – 41 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 This house, with gableted facade bay window, was one of the first houses built on North Willard Street, and still retains much of its original appearance.  Like many of the plainer houses in this area, it derives much of its character from the distinctive porch; in this case, a two story porch with scrollwork panels.  It was built for E. L. Whitlock, an employee of C. H. Emerson & Co., manufacturers of cabinets, boxes, and other wood products in Van Patten’s Champlain Shops in the waterfront.  It typifies the tremendous growth of substantial middle class residences which accompanied industrialization in the late nineteenth century.

81 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 A classic example of late 19th century middle class taste in housing, this well maintained house retains its original character.  Basically conservative in design, the bay windows and use of imbricated shingles at various points on the building reflect the great popularity of the Queen Anne style.  Like several of the earlier houses on this street, this house has a sizable sideyard which contrasts to the later, more densely built up east side of this block; and reflects the changing ideas of spatial relationships of land to house in residential neighborhoods.

 

The house was built for H. M. McIntosh, city engineer and surveyor.  The present owner-resident is a member of the same family.

83 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 Similar to 28 North Willar Street and 179 Loomis Street, it is most likely that these houses were bult by the same firm.  However, the decorative treatment of the facades and different style porches give these three houses their individuality.  This house is a departure in style from the majority of houses in the North Willard Street area and while maintaining the rhythm and scale of the street, it is an interesting counterpoint to its more formal neighbors.

 

Patrick McAuliffe, for whom the house was built, was an employee of Hobart Shanley, bookseller and stationer.  McAuliffe later took over the business, which became McAuliffe’s bookstore, on the southwest corner of Church and College, long a downtown landmark.

 According to Earl Bonnette, neighbor, this highly decorative Queen Anne residence was built by Lamoreux as his own home.  The house is dominated by the round tower and accentuated by the denticular cornice and Queen Anne veranda.  More elaborate than the surrounding houses, it stands on its own merit as an excellent representative of its style.  The present owner indicated that although the house was converted into a dormitory about 25 years ago, the original decorative woodwork was carefully presrerved.

227 North Willard Street Burlington, VT 05401
 This distinctive square massed Italianate style building is distinguished by its clean lines and ordered facade.  The detailing is concentrated on the corners which reinforces and helps punctuate the sharp clean lines.

 

It was built by John Roberts, a successful and prolific builder of workers’ housing in Burlington in the late nineteenth century, for his own home.  Roberts moved his residence and his shop across the street by 1890, and kept this house as a rental residential property.  Roberts’ standard house type, of which there are scores still standing in the city, was 1 ½ stories, framed, with the gable end toward the street, a side entrance and a distinctive bay window on the facade.  Queen Anne stickwork often embellished the gable.  (see #77 Mansfield Avenue, #156 – 158 King Street).
