The Cooley-Eveleth House is a rare Federal style brick farmhouse located in the Longmeadow Street–North Historic District. Built in 1827 by Calvin Cooley, this 5-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home with a library, 5 fireplaces with an original Dutch oven, 4 chimneys, and a 2-car garage is the perfect blend of historic charm and modern convenience. An updated kitchen (inc. two wall ovens and a breakfast nook), first-floor laundry, spacious garage, central air conditioning and forced hot air provide you contemporary comforts while you live in Federal era bliss. The bricks for this home were kilned on the property by original owner Calvin Cooley, and local, but nationally-known Longmeadow brownstone was used for the foundation and sills. Notably, most original hand-blown glass panes remain in the twelve-over-twelve-paned windows. The slate roof, too, is of historic significance, having been repurposed and reinforced in 1937 from Springfield's Old Town Hall. Sits on 1.19 acres.
