The Adams/Martin House is an attractive small bungalow in the Bigelow Highlands neighborhood. It was built in 1927 by J.B. and Ella Prilman Adams. Adams was listed as a carpenter and may have built the house himself. It has fine, well-preserved Craftsman style features. The Bigelow Highlands neighborhood is known for having a number of homes that were built for workers in the mills and other industry on the waterfront (see Rebecca Christie’s book, Workingman’s Hill). The home is on the local register.
