Item Information

Title:
Tiffany Leonary House Elm Street Southbridge Massachusetts
Description:
Built between 1830 and 1840, this Greek Revival style brick house is located on Elm Street in the Centre Village. The house was built by Bela Tiffany, "a wealthy New Yorker who first came to Southbridge riding magnificently in a coach-and-four in search of health and, caught by the charm of the town, remained to become a leading citizen. According to tradition his home was specifically designed to fit his valuable carpets of which he was very proud. (from the Southbridge News, Saturday, June 11, 1938). Manning Leonard lived in this house as well. He was active in the business community, involved with Central Manufacturing among other initiatives, who retired due to ill health but went on to be involved in the civic events and was a member of the library committee. The temple front and the tall narrow proportions are the outstanding features of this building. A rear wing was added later. Current home to Stonebridge Press where the Southbridge Evening News is published.
