These are the verified buildings that researchers have studied, plus 24 Kent and 20 First Ave, which I had heard about. I’ve added text I found the Historic Preservation Survey (HP). That document includes 286 Berlin St as another possible Sloan house but it isn’t according to Howard family research.
Could 95 College be one of the 2 story buildings from the Sloan Campus? More notes below picture. I need to compare it to 99-101 E State which has an L fitting the standard dimension, but I wonder about the main part with front entry, similar to 95 College.
I wonder if there are any other bldgs in Montpelier. And I wonder if any were moved off campus when the older dorms etc were replaced with brick buildings. Michael Sherman mentions someone told him a hospital or college building was moved down E State to become part of the Cross Baking Co buildings.The Sanborn map from 1925 shows 2 buildings that could be the correct width.
