Designed by architect, Samuel C. Hunt, this home was built in 1907 for J. Henry Herring in 1907. Herring was a representative of the R.G. Dun mercantile agency at the time. The architect, Samuel C. Hunt was trained as a carpenter as a youth but later attended architecture classes at M.I.T. during the time when he was employed as a construction engineer. The broad porch with thin Ionic detailing is not quite as elaborate as its neighbors, but the Palladian window on the north side gives the house formality.
