Mary Sewell Cottage

Mary Sewell CottageThis circa 1910 cottage is an unusual shape for a residence and may have been originally used as a meeting place for social events. Because of its location, it might have been associated with Lakeside Park. It may have been associated with the Bowcock’s House now known as Belmont Recreation Center. The brick structure is an excellent example of the Colonial Revival style. Of particular interest are the stone window lintels over floor-length windows and the entry double door with a stone curved transom accented with keystones.
