E. & Sadie A. Long
This house, one of three
built on Greenough Street in 1925, was the home initially of Alfred
and Sadie Long, proprietors of a towel supply business. Alfred,
born in England in 1862 or 1863, came to the United States in 1907.
Sadie was his second wife. They had a daughter, Alice. The Longs
were listed at this address in the Street List from 1928 to 1939.
The 1930 U.S. Census
showed the residents as: Alfred E. Long, 68, manager (towel supplies),
born England; Sadie A. Long, 54, proprieter (towel supplies); and
their daughter Alice M. Long, 12. The house was valued at $19,000.
The next owners were
Conrad and Myrtle Granath, who moved here from Boston and were listed
in the Street List until 1943. Conrad (1896-1979) was born in Sweden
and came to the U.S. in 1921. His occupation was shown in the Street
List as an embalmer at first, and then as a manufacturer. Myrtle
(1894-1973), who was born in Rhode Island, was listed as owner of
an employment agency in the 1930 Census, but the Street List listed
her as a housewife.
Following the Granaths
in this house were Ida and Samuel Harris who moved here from Boston.
Both were born in Russia, Samuel coming to the U.S. in 1903 and
Ida in 1913. Samuel was a lawyer. They had a daughter, Harriet.
Earl S. Butterfield,
the builder of this house, also built three houses around the corner
on Stanton Road in 1925.
