Philip Dean, Architect
William and Margaret Dowling built this impeccably maintained Craftsman style apartment building. It included luxury amenities such as chandeliers and built-in breakfronts in the dining rooms, laundry service and a dumb waiter system. Margaret Dowling, who lived here until her death in 1962, was a tireless advocate for the well being of institutionalized, elderly, immigrant and poor people, through her service on local, state and national Catholic and social welfare organizations.
