After decades of abuse and minimal maintenance, the pair of Greek Revival houses at 223-225 Allen Street, dating from 1835, is getting a major restoration. Below is the rendering of what the houses will look like when the restoration is complete, which was presented last year to the Historic Preservation Commission.
It was clear that the roof at 225 Allen would have to be reconstructed after fire damaged the building in May 2020.

Watching the rescue of these houses, among the earliest on Allen Street, fills me with awe and gratitude.
