Rowhouses 174-184 Maple Street


This is perhaps the most ornate of Springfield's High Victorian Gothic style brick row houses at the corner of Maple and Central Streets. It was built in 1873 from plans of local architect George E. Potter. His only other known remaining structure in Springfield is the Temple Street Row house, which dates from 1874. 




The houses have been in multiple ownerships and have been neglected. The City foreclosed on 174 and 176 Maple Street for back taxes and offered for sale with Community Development Block Grant assistance to help in exterior renovation.  A developer was chosen, and he acquired the other four row houses. Because of no work having occurred, the City has taken back 174 and 176 which recently had a fire.  A new owner owns the other four row houses and plans to make apartments.



Once these buildings are restored they would beautifully become vibrant apartment buildings.
