The Allyson Apartments is a recognizable historic landmark in Manchester. The Victorian style apartments were built in 1889, and include unique features such as ornate columns at the entryways and decorative brackets on the roof overhang. During the recent rehabilitation by Elm Grove Companies, the entire exterior of the building was encapsulated using lead barrier compound, and all of the windows were replaced for energy efficiency. Additionally, extensive repairs were made to the interior of the building, notably the preservation of the original wood siding. It has quickly become one of the most sought out apartment buildings by local Manchester residents.
