This home and the others on the west side and northern end of Dale Street were all built as mill operative tenement housing by the Ballard Vale Mill Company in the mid 19th century. Although not included in either the Ballardvale Local Historic District or the Ballardvale National Resister Historic District, they do have historic context to the Districts as the last surviving wooden mill housing on Dale St. and fall withing the buffer zone.
The Ballard Vale Mills owned the homes for about 100 years before selling thee mill complex and all buildings to Marshal I Stone in February 1928. The Ballard Vale Mills held the mortgage as did the Essex Savings Bank of Lawrence, MA. A second mortgage was held by Helen A. Kendall of Washington, D.C. One parcel included all the housing and buildings on the west side of Dale Street. These buildings were later sub-divided into separate lots and sold off individually.
Marshall I. Stone was foreclosed on in 1944 and the Essex Savings Bank then sold the deeds to George W. French of Painfield, NJ. on Oct. 6, 1944. This property was sold to Harold F. & Blanche J. Evans on Sept. 13, 1947. Evans held the property for seven years then sold to Charles J. & Nina G. Madden on March 20, 1954. The Maddons were long time owners of the property for forty years. Charles Madden b. 1921 is listed as a molder. Nina b. 1912 was a housewife. Nina died on June 18, 1990 and Charles in 1994.
The property was then sold to the Depama Realty Trust, James Chongris trustee on Oct. 5, 1994. In 1998 the property was then sold to Kenneth J. & Karen M. Pantano. The lot was later sub-divided in 2003 and the property remains with the Pantano family in the Pantano Realty Trust.
