Built in 1868, the Vertullo Building is likely the oldest and only surviving wooden commercial building in this district from the first years of the Town of Hyde Park.  It is a good example of the Second Empire style, popular in the 1860s when Hyde Park was incorporated as a town and new civic and commercial buildings were constructed along River Street and Fairmount Avenue near Hyde Park's two major rail lines.   Located opposite the Riverside Theaterworks and adjacent to the Fairmount Avenue MBTA Commuter station, the Vertullo Building is a highly visible historical anchor to Logan Square. The property has survived largely intact because it has been in the hands of the Vertullo Family and their descendants since 1932.  

We hope to see you on May 9th!
