Description and history
The Anthony Zemaitis Three-Decker is located east of downtown Worcester, on the north side of Dartmouth Street in the city's Bloomingdale neighborhood. It is a three-story wood frame structure, with a hip roof and exterior finished in a combination of wooden clapboards and shingling. The main facade is asymmetrical, with a full-height polygonal window bay on the right, and a stack of three porches on the left, supported by square posts and topped by a gable. It has bands of decorative shingling between the levels and brackets in the extended eaves. Some windows have lights with stained glass.
The house was built about 1914, during a major eastward expansion of residential three-decker construction. The house's early tenants were ethnically diverse, drawn from other immigrant neighborhoods of the city. Anthony Zemaitis, the first owner, was a machinist; his tenants were a patternmaker and traffic manager.
