Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Historic Preservation Building

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

Jannucci House
1116 LaFarge Avenue

Built in 1908, this house is a rare example of modest brick construction. In 1910 it was the home of siblings Joseph, Ernest and Cleonice Jannucci and later became the residence of Joseph and his wife Philomena.
