Restoration efforts at the historic Kittredge House in Roxbury are progressing, as crews work to bring the Linwood Street home back to its original glory.
The three-story structure was constructed in 1836 by Alvah Kittredge, a Roxbury alderman, famed furniture maker, and deacon at the Eliot Congregational Church. It has also been called home by a number of famous figures, including Nathaniel Bradlee, a prominent Boston architect.
The Greek revival mansion boasts more than 6,000-square-feet of living space with its towering columns, elegant fa?ade, and winding staircases.
