Abstract: Kelly-Swords House (1913) 516 Northeast 4th Street From Historic Preservation, Alachua County ( Kelly-Swords House (1913) 516 Northeast 4th Street This spacious two-story frame vernacular home displays a prominent front dormer and a broad porch with solid square columns. The interior contains impressive wainscotting, a wooden stairway, classic built-ins, original chandeliers, leaded glass hall windows and five fireplaces. The original owner, George H. Kelly, owned a music store and ran a lumber sawmill. From 1952 to 1984 the Swords sisters, Mary Ellen and Louise, ran a private boarding house and family style restaurant here. A group of twenty-five or so regulars ate their evening meal there during the week, forming a sort of dinner club, with others coming only by invitation. Students could eat for $10 a week and one of them, Steve Reid, returned decades later to purchase the home.
