This colonial structure was constructed in 1892 by noted furniture maker, Albert Henry Davenport. He built the mansion to celebrate his successful and prosperous interior design and furniture business. Davenport's furniture graced the Grover Cleveland White House, the Royal Palace of Hawaii and other fine establishments including the Converse Memorial Library. Davenport's daughter, Alice May, born in 1878 lived in the home until she passed away in 1944. Today, the Davenport Memorial Building offers a peaceful and luxurious atmosphere for retired Malden residents. The retirement home was opened in 1946 as a bequest of Alice May to honor her parents.
