Chelsea Country Store // 1927

The Chelsea Country Store was built from the remains of an almost identical c.1818 store destroyed in a major fire that also destroyed several other commercial buildings south of the store on the west side of Main Street. Its form mirrors that of the adjacent store, and together the commercial blocks, with their parapet walls, end chimneys, and Federal detail, act as a truly unique landmark for the village. According to records, the brick end survived the fire in 1926, the remainder was reconstructed similar to what was once there.

    How about New Bedford and Dartmouth? Haven’t seen any of the broad wealth of really remarkable architecture found there in your blog, unless I missed something. PS: Really enjoying all that you’ve done though. A great resource!
