North Street

North Street was originally called “Mulberry Street” from the large number of black and white mulberries that grew there. During the early part of the 19th century, this street contained chiefly pasture lots, orchards, a distillery and a few scattered tenant houses. As the village grew, new houses were built and often a small house from another part of the village would be moved there to make room for a large one built by prosperous property owners. The majority of these houses have been altered, enlarged or replaced. The street is just outside the boundaries of the National Historic District, but many homes are of historic interest. Included here are those for which Nancy O’Dea wrote histories.
