Aspinwall House, Original Layout
This 1869 picture is a good starting point for understanding the history of the Aspinwall house. Oddly, it appears that the house was deliberately designed to have the rear face Aspinwall Ave. In this photo the house still has its extended rear structure and the great elm tree has come down.
