Description

First appearing in the 1890s, these three unit apartments began to emerge as a popular dwellings for the growing population. This three-story building consists of three identical living units, with one on each floor. While most were designed for lower-income families, some emerged for middle-income families around Elmwood and the East Side. This housing style dominated inner city neighborhoods of Providence around this time.
