Francis Boucher Franklin Burgess
Birth: Mar. 15, 1868
Death: Nov. 16, 1935

Architect. He is known for building Cedar Grove, using late-Federal styling. Popular from about 1800 to 1860, the house is of interest for several reasons. It is one of the very few substantial brick houses built between 1845 and 1880, a period experiencing extreme economic instability. The house is nearly unique in that the two-part east wing is original to the 2 1/2-story main block. The wing is of further interest for the design of its roof. The house today is essentially the same in appearance as when it was built, and it is one of the very few buildings that retain all of their original interiors. As one of a handful of mid-19th century structures and the home of a local political figure, Cedar Grove is an architectural and historic landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. (bio by: Dennis Hubscher)
