Edward Searle House, 107 Wilbur Avenue, Oaklawn, Providence County, RI
Significance: The original part of the house was constructed in the fourth quarter of the seventeenth century but the two-story, five-bay main block with a central chimney plan and gable roof was not built until around 1728. The building was expanded sometime later, but by the time of the HABS documentation in 1940, this gambrel-roofed addition had been removed.
