The Triple-Decker | May 31

Adams Street Branch and Historic New England presents: The Triple-Decker. A dominant presence in neighborhoods across New England, the triple-decker is the region’s iconic multiple-family housing type. But where did they come from and 
why did we stop building them? In this 
illustrated lecture from 3pm to 4:30pm, Senior Preservation Services Manager Sally Zimmerman 
explores the origins and design of triple deckers, the push to ban them in the early twentieth century, and their place in the social and architectural history of New England's urban landscape. Light reception to follow at Historic New England's nearby Pierce House. This event is FREE, but please register! For more info, or to register, call 617-994-6678 or visit
