131 Calyer Street

One of five neo-Grec brick row houses built by Daniel W.L. Moore, a local builder/developer. Design of the buildings is attributed to Frederick Weber. Moore lived at 131 Calyer Street when the house was completed.

The two-story houses were originally designed with projecting square oriel windows with a modillioned cornice at the first floor and square-headed windows with corbeled sills and incised lintels at the second floor. 131 Calyer is the only house in the row to retain the original oriel.
