Entrance Gates to the C. K. G. Billings estate. While the mansion and caretakers cottage no longer remain, the garage and stable buildings have been converted to private residences. The gates still survive, but lead no where and are heavily overgrown, almost unrecognizable. The Georgian style main house was designed by architect Guy Lowell in 1915. The Billings family sold it to the Wallis Bird family who lived there until the accidental death of Mr. Bird. Mrs. Bird later spent many years in Europe leaving the house short staffed, to fall into ruin and abandonment. The house was demolished in the 1960's and now the estate is subdivided into smaller lots.
