Located on one of the most prominent sites on Forbes Hill, this impressive Tudor Revival style house at 95 Resevoir Road, was built in the 1930s at a cost of $9700 for Edwin S. White, president of White Bros. Milk, one of the largest dairy companies on the South Shore, and located in North Quincy. My father was a milkman for White Bros and this was part of his route so he must have delivered milk to the boss's house! What a fun discovery for the family history.
Did any of you ever get your milk delivered to your house? Crescent Ridge Dairy is the only company I know of that might still deliver in Quincy . . . what a help it was when the children were small.
The designer of this brick beauty was Boston architect Harry Morton Ramsay. He designed an asymmetrical facade whose dominant element is the picturesque granite faced tower with a conical roof. On the right is a projecting gabled wing which balances the long slope of the slate roof on the left which is pierced by a large hip dormer. There are only a few Tudor style houses in Quincy; this being a fine example.
