George Treat House // 1926

The Treat House was built between in 1926 for George W. Treat, the president of E.H. Rollins and Sons, a stock brokerage firm located at 200 Devonshire Street in Downtown Boston. The house was built toward the end of the extended period of development of Braintree, which boomed in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and continued into the 1920s and 1930s. Though the main body of the house is constructed of brick masonry with little decorative trim, the entry porch is the focus of a Renaissance-inspired door surround combined with picturesque rusticated stonework. This mixture of medieval and early Renaissance decoration is common in the Tudor Revival architectural style.
