Signficant Architectural Features:
Greek Revival. One of a row of three houses built at the same time by Francis Q. McHugh for the purpose of investment. The houses are all single houses with flat roofs, piazzas on the side, and entrances to the piazzas right on the street. Each is made with bricks laid in common bond and with thick brownstone lintels and sills to the windows with a slight decorative ribbing near the parapet. The carved wooden overhang above the entrances of 66 is probably a post Civil War addition. The smaller house at 68 Beaufain, with its pressed tin window ornaments, takes advantage of a slightly larger lot to spread itself out and enjoy the proportions of the period.
