Albert Hardy House
30 Franklin Street – Circa 1875
According to the Uxbridge – Cultural Heritage Walking Tour brochure
Albert Hardy, who worked for the Uxbridge Piano and Organ Company as a piano tuner built this house in 1875. The house is an unusual style for Uxbridge, built as Second Empire style, also known as the Napoleon III style.
“A straight-sided mansard roof punctuated by two hooded dormers with enriched surrounds characterizes the style. Similar to the Italianate, the cornice is embellished with scrolled brackets and a plain frieze. Note the indented double entryway with rounded lights and the raised brick quoins. The home has several lovely interior details.”
