J. Hartley and Ella Criddle
The brick Criddle House is a handsome example of the American Foursquare Style. This term includes the many simple, hip-roofed houses that were built in Stoughton about 1910-1920, as well as more elaborately detailed houses such as this one. Hers, two shades of brick, a spacious porch, and prominent overhanging eaves enhance the exterior.
Criddle, a florist, operated a greenhouse on the site that is now CriddlePark. The household included Perley, the Criddle’s son. Later, the house was used as a funeral home. It is now a private residence.
