Harlow House // c.1909

Located on a dead end street in Waban, you’ll find this stunning Shingle style property, which rambles on forever! The house was built in the first decade of the 20th century and blends the Shingle style with the ever-popular Colonial Revival style. I could surprisingly not locate the architect for the house, but I’d guess that it was designed by the architectural firm of Longfellow, Alden, & Harlow, the last of which, Alfred Branch Harlow, shared a last name with the original owner of the home, Arthur Brooks Harlow. (And the same last name as Louis K. Harlow, an artist who lived one street away in a similar style home). I am not sure if these two were related, but thats my hunch. If anyone wants to do more digging on this and share the story with me, I’d be so grateful!

    You are correct – they are all connected. Alfred Branch Harlow and Louis Kinney Harlow were first cousins, and Arthur Brooks Harlow was the son of Louis Kinney Harlow. I found this information on Find A Grave and Family Search.

    Hope this finds you well,
