Built (as barn):
to Blake estate:
1900 and 1907
Residents at this Address:
Southard (see below)
Road is in the same house as 8 Lowell. See 8
Lowell Road for the history of the house itself and the people
who lived at that address. The residents of 10 Lowell are described
on this page.
under 8 Lowell, various butlers and coachmen were shown in the Brookline
Street List as living "off Greenough," or on "Greenough
Street within," designations that seems to have been applied
to the Blake stables as well as to 8-10 and 12-14 Lowell before
that street was laid out. It's unclear how many of them might have
been living in what is now 8-10 Lowell.
the Blake chauffer, and Abbie Paige, a teacher, were listed at "off
Greenough" or "Greenough Street within" and then,
briefly, at 10 Lowell Road before reappearing at 55 & 57 Greenough
Street, a house that was moved from Lowell Road in 1921 or 1922.
See 55-57 Greenough Street for more
family listed at 10 Lowell Road was that of Carolyn Southard (1880-1966).
A widow, Southard lived with her daughter Margaret, a secretary/stenographer,
and son Keith, a student. (In 1944, the last year the Southards
were listed, Keith was in the Coast Guard.)
live at this address were Samuel and Rebecky Wernick. Both of the
Wernciks were born in Russia and came to the U.S. in 1913. Samuel
was an antiques dealer. They had two sons, the older of whom was
in the army when they moved to Lowell Road.
