General information

Now the Harris Funeral Home, the Dryden house at 49 Linden Avenue is in outstanding condition. It has a three-part facade with advancing central pavilion and recessed doorway. The door detail of 1911 includes an excellent wrought iron screen and beveled art glass sidelights. The three-bay porch has a wrought iron rail and ceramic deck. There is a wide box cornice with laminated brackets, paneling and attic windows in the frieze. The central pavilion is crowned by a semi-circular pediment with the date 1869. The hip roof has a frame two-bay cupola with semi-circular 2/2 double hung sash windows, brackets and finial. There are four inside wall chimneys with corbelled caps and chimney pots. There is a one-story polygonal bay on the left side. The lot is surrounded by a brick wall with a stone cap and includes a carriage house also built in 1869 and, as is true of the rest of the property, is in excellent condition. The interior of the house includes an open dog-leg staircase, shouldered moulding around the doorway which surrounds a five-panel door, peach and leaf plaster moulding in many of the rooms and classical cove cornice in others. The fireplaces are semi-circular marble Victorian fireplaces with sculptured cartouche. The polygonal bay is paneled on the inside. There is also a turn-of-the-century Neo-Classic corner cupboard and plate rail. Each of the downstairs rooms has a central rosette on the ceiling.
