Detailed History

Aside from the use included on the Sanborn map, there is no additionally documentation connecting the property to a garage known as Guilfoyle's. In Watertown, the name Guilfoyle is associated with an ambulance service, which was started by funeral director Dennis E. Guilfoyle. Mr. Guilfoyle's widow sold the funeral and ambulance business to Nello L. Poli, who operated it until 1955.
