The David Dworman Three-Decker is a historic triple decker in Worcester, Massachusetts. Built in 1926 for the builder's family, it is a remarkably well-built and preserved example of a Craftsman style triple decker. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.

Description and history

The David Dworman Three-Decker is located in Worcester's southern Vernon Hill neighborhood, on the east side of Providence Street (Massachusetts Route 122A) opposite Vernon Hill Park. It is a three-story wood frame structure, with a hip roof, from which a three-window shed-roof dormer projects. The ground floor is finished in wide wooden clapboards, while the upper floors are finished in wooden shingles. The main facade is asymmetrical, with a recessed porch stack on the left and bands of four sash windows on the right. The porches feature square columns set above the enclosed balustrades. There is a projecting rectangular bay on the side, with bands of three sash windows at each level, and a pedimented gable above that has a diamond-light window at the center.

The triple decker was built c. 1926 by David Dworman, a major developer of the Vernon Hill area, for the family's use. The Dwormans were responsible for building a number of triple deckers in the Woodford Street area just to the east. In addition to the Dwormans, early residents included merchants and salesmen.
