The Moreland Terrace Historic District is located in Bristol County, Massachusetts and is just east of Page Street and St. Luke’s Hospital. It is a very small neighborhood comprised of approximately 18 acres in New Bedford, and according to the National Register of Historic Places, it contains portions of Ash, Bedford, Page streets, and all of Meriam, Stetson and Moreland Terrace.
Architect/Builders include Adden & Parker; Howe, Manning & Almy; George Ingraham; Leo LaBrodge; Smith & Howland; William Tallman; Joseph R. Perry.
The area was added to the National Register of Historic places around 1996. Many of the historic houses in this district have spacious lots that may be larger than average. They are primarily Colonial Revival & Tudor revival style homes from the late Victorian, Late 19th & Early 20th Century that were built after the land was sold off from two large estates known as “the Morelands” and Birkenshaw.
HOMES FOR SALE IN & AROUND MORELAND TERRACE
If you love this area, you may need to be patient. There aren’t too many homes in the neighborhood, so inventory can be limited.
For example: There are only 8 homes on Moreland Terrace (all Colonials & Tudors) and there have only been a handful of transactions dating back to 1995 according to MLS records. Stetson Street has 7 homes, again, mostly Colonials with a couple of Cape-Cod style homes in the mix. The last time a home sold on Stetson Street (at the time of this article) was 2013. Meriam Street only has 6 total homes, 1 of which is a Ranch.
