Former George B. and Susan Elkins House

1375 Dean Street
c. 1855-69 

This lovely wood-frame house with Greek Revival and Italianate details stands as a reminder of the early development of Crown Heights North, when freestanding villas were built during the neighborhood’s transition from farmland in the mid-19th century. George Elkins was a real estate developer specializing in the sale of sites similar to this one in this burgeoning commuter suburb.

The Former George B. and Susan Elkins House is a New York City Individual Landmark, located in the Crown Heights North Historic District and the State and National Register of Historic Places Crown Heights North Historic District.
