Demolition Delay Inventory 1901-1939DEMOLITION DELAY 1901 -1939 INVENTORY NORTHAMPTON HISTORICAL COMMISSION --- JULY 2005 - Wednesday, July 20, 2005 Northampton Historical Commission 210 Main Street Northampton, MA 01060 To the Commission Members: The enclosed report fulfills the responsibility of the Northampton Historical Commission to complete an inventory of properties to be included under the protection of the recently adopted demolition delay ordinance. The ordinance specified that buildings built prior to 1901 would automatically be subject to demolition delay, but that properties built between 1901 and 1939 should be reviewed by the Historical Commission, in order to determine which ones merit protection. Properties may be worthy of protection if they are either historically, culturally or architecturally significant. While very few buildings from this era are associated with important historical events, we found many which warrant protection because of their architectural and aesthetic merits. The buildings we have chosen are of three types: residential, commercial, and institutional. Of these, the largest group is residential. Houses from this era were built in a variety of architectural styles, including Craftsman /Bungalow, Colonial Revival, Tudor, Mediterranean, Modern, and Queen Anne. We have picked the best examples of these styles for inclusion. Of these, the most common style is Colonial revival, which takes several distinct forms: Earlier houses tend to be more creative, similar in spirit to Victorian buildings, while later houses adhere more closely to historical models. Another distinct variety of colonial revival is the four - square. Each of these types were quite popular in Northampton, and we have selected the best examples from each for inclusion. In order to compile this inventory, we visually canvassed the entire city, identifying properties from the time period and creating a preliminary list of approximately 200 potential candidates for inclusion. Each property was photographed. From the initial list we jointly decided which properties to include and which to discard, winnowing the list down to the current 135 properties. During this process we focused on each stylistic category individually, in order to insure that we would have a number of properties from each and that no category would be disproportionally represented. For properties which had not been previously documented we have completed Form B's (standard historic inventory forms) including brief descriptions of each property, outlining the basis for preservation. We hope that this report will provide a solid foundation for a preservation campaign should any of these properties ever be threatened with demolition. We would like to thank the Commission for its continued work in preserving Northampton's history, and for giving us the opportunity to contribute to this effort. � A Aaron Helfand Graduate Student University of Notre Dame School of Architecture Andrea Drake Graduate Student University of Virginia School of Architecture -1- HISTORIC PROPERTIES INVENTORY 1901 -1939 STREET # DESCRIPTION YEAR B STYLE NOTES LIST BY STREET Adare 14 1926 B bungalow Bancroft 44 c. 1900 tudor Bancroft 76 1918 B colonial revival shingle Bancroft 98 1926 B tudor 1922 - Bancroft 102 K Putnam, Arch. 30 B colonial revival Barrett Place 12 1926 B colonial revival 17th c. style Barrett Place 32 1910 B colonial revival large Beacon 42 1907 B tudor Bedford Ter. 36 Smith dorm 1900 tudor half - timbered Bedford Ter.
