Former site of Downes Cottage
Bult in 1883 for J.O. Downes, also in the S.B. Downes business. But this lot is now vacant because the house was moved to 60 Eighth Avenue around 1930.

Triplet Houses?
Three cottages at 10 Eighth Avenue, 12 Eighth Avenue, and 16 Eighth Avenue were built as neighbors in 1882, 1883, and 1885. All three had identical building footprints, a vernacular Victorian style, curving front roof lines and five-column front porch. but a close comparison reveals noteworthy differences. The big surpise is that one was moved halfway around the circling avenue.
