Anecdotal Information:
Interview with Michael & Elizabeth Doucette on June 30, 2011: Michael and Elizabeth Doucette moved onto Rivermont in 2001 from Bedford. They have kept the woodwork and light switches the same, and have tried to make the light fixtures true to the character of the house. The couple has rebuilt the front porch, re-done the sunroom, and as of 2010 started redoing the slate roof in stages. They have also had insulation put in but kept the plaster walls. They added air conditioning in 2009. The house was said to be one of two built by two unmarried sisters, to look alike and be mirror images on the inside. The house features a huge landing and foyer, and large windows. The property also shares a driveway with 2142 Rivermont Avenue.
