    This is a transitional residence with manifestation of both Queen Anne style, with asymmetrical massing, wrap-around porch and corner tower, and also Colonial Revival style, with its dormer with broken pediment, multi-light windows, modillions and dentil course, classical columns. The doorway is particularly elegant, with decorative glass sidelights and transom with additional glass.

    Built in 1902, the original owners were Ben and Clorinda Lowell. Ben Lowell was the founder, president and treasurer of the Lowell-Merservey Hardware Company, which incorporated in 1897.

    Used as fraternity house in 1931, it evolved into an apartment house by 1941, when it was known as the Eleanor-Ann Apartments. Locally significant.
