Charles Riley House

The Charles Riley House is a historic house in Newton, Massachusetts. This large neo-Classical estate house started out as a more modest wood frame structure built in the 1870s by Boston businessman Job Turner. In c. 1888 Charles Riley, a manufacturer of cotton processing machinery, greatly expanded the house, giving it the present neo-Classical styling, and finishing the exterior in brick and stone.[2]
