The cape style house, one 1/2 story with addition to southwest end of the home. Originally sheathed in wood clapboard siding replaced by vinyl siding. Home is however in the general style as built.
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 lot H-1 was sold by French to Florence O. Stone of Newton Mass. on April 1, 1950. This was investment property for Stone who died on Aug. 5, 1956. The property was then inherited by he family who then sold this lot to Marshall I Stone of Bourne, MA on Aug. 21, 1958. Marshall owned for eleven years then selling to Kenneth E. & Valerie A. Arsenault on June 13, 1969.
