240 South Ave.
This hidden historical gem, located in the southeast sector of the Village, is nestled amongst mostly mid-20th century residences. The multi-acre property is dotted with numerous mature sycamore, maple, and coniferous trees and the house itself is set back a bit from the roadway. It appears to have been constructed in the 1930s and is characteristic of 1920s-30s Colonial Revival style. Original details include wood shingle siding, louvered shutters, brick end chimneys, and half-fan gable windows.
The house was built by Thomas N. Nagle, a well-known Webster businessman who owned Amaco Oil Company. He operated a dairy farm on South Avenue from 1942 to 1956. It’s worth noting that the structure is the largest example of the Colonial Revival housing type in the Village of Webster. The handsome landscaping and mature trees add even more character to this shining example of c. 1930s architecture.
