James Wakelin house

The Wakelin house at 1067 Northampton Street has its entrance on Mountain View Drive. The front lawn is an Olmsted Brothers design from 1924.

The James Wakelin house is on the corner of Northampton Street and Mountain View Drive. It is an Olmsted Brothers landscape. James Wakelin was the owner of the McAuslan-Wakelin department store on Dwight Street.

Prior to the 1924 home and landscape, this was the location of the Mt Tom club house. It was on the house to the south – the William Anger house. Notice the steps along the southern border of the Wakelin land and along the southern border of the Anger land. I believe these twin steps bracketed the Mt Tom club house.
