An Accidental House History

Last summer, Gossips published a news item, shared by a reader, from the Hudson Evening Register for April 2, 1875, about a house that had been built--"from the cellar foundation to turn of the key"--in just thirteen days.

Some research discovered that the house built with such astonishing speed was 520 Clinton Street.

Today, I discovered, in the Hudson Evening Register for December 8, 1917, an item that reveals another chapter in the life of the house then known as "the old William H. Power place" and pinpoints exactly when the "commodious building" was converted into a two-family residence.
