Historic Buildings of the London Borough of Haringey

Site: William Tegetmeier (1 memorial)

N10, St James's Lane, 101

Muswell Hill was not developed until the late 19th century so when Tegetmeier lived here he was probably surrounded by farmland. The house does not appear on this 1863-9 map but is on this 1888 map, still with not much else around.
