Architect: Sutton, Charles E.
Category: residential district
Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Lawrence (2001)

Extending an early twentieth century trend of southern and western residential expansion in Lawrence, Charles E. Sutton developed the Breezedale Addition and the streetcar route at the southern end of Massachusetts Street. In an unsual venture for Lawrence, he built five homes with similar architectural character in 1909 and 1910. This was the first attempt in Larwerence to create an identifiable surburban neighborhood. The district includes fourteen contributing and five non-contributing resources. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Resources of Lawrence" multiple property nomination for its association with local development and its early twentieth century architecture.
