Sometime around the year 2000, this much-added-onto house, built late in Fremont Place's history on a subdivision of the large lot once belonging exclusively to #61, received an amusing McMansion-worthy portico. While images of its pre-column visage have not turned up, #63 was built in 1954 as a modern suburban house with the garage not in the back but right up front. A very early owner if not the builder was casket manufacturer Martin Winkler, who remained in the house until his death on December 11, 1989.

The full story of 63 Fremont Place will appear in due course.
