Real Estate: 112 1st St Quality Row Home $209,900

112 1st St Newburgh NY

The homes of Quality Row are historical gems. Now you too can have a slice of history. In 1836 Thomas Edison stayed in one of these homes as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. This is how the name Quality Row came about according to the 1891 publication Newburgh: Her Institutions, Industries and Leading Citizens:

At the time of their erection these house were considered much above the average in cost and elegance, and for this reason, combined with the high social standing of the original occupants, the buildings were known throughout the village as “Quality Row,” a designation which still lingers among our old families.”

  • Gorgeous! This is pretty much my dream house. I’ve always loved these Quality Row houses, and these owners have done a wonderful job of keeping the place up. Having those side windows of an end unit makes a big difference in the brightness of the large rooms, and I love both the mantels and the striped floors. The garden is an unexpected perk as well. When these houses were first built, would the dining room have been in the cellar with the kitchen, or was the plan always like it appears to be now? Oh, and am I right in assuming there is no off street parking?
