Historic Moments

This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are featuring:

Zarini House

Zarini House
1109 LaFarge Avenue

Ann Dixon had this house constructed in 1909. From 1920 to 1989, it was the home of Henry “Rico” and Mary Zarini and their family. He was a butcher in town who remembered the then 12” tall trees in the front yard in the 1920’s which are now among the tallest trees in Old Town.
