W. A. Simmons House (c. 1898)

The cross-gabled, ell cottage at 2030 Clarendon Avenue boasts a full-facade and wrapped porch that appears to have been a later remodeling of the original one. The front-facing wing is a cutaway bay with shingling in the gable face and novelty board siding. Original 1-over-1 sash windows are still intact.

William A. Simmons was a grocer and dry-goods merchant in Bessemer.

The current owners, James Pierce and Mary Self, are restoring the property.
