Charles Burton House

Richard Marr designed this brick and stucco colonial with an unusual tile roof for Charles Burton, the developer of Palmer Woods, in 1915.

Originally located at 19237 Gloucester, the house was moved in 1930 to allow Alfred and Alma Fisher to expand their gardens. It holds the distinction of being the oldest home in Palmer Woods.
