It was transferred to Robert Bolles in 1903, then to Clement Bolles in 1916, then to Bertha and William Packard the following year. This house is a fine example of a Queen Anne Cottage. Features include a wealth of shingle types and an exceptional shingled carriage house in the rear which retains a cupola.
