The Richard O'Brien Three-Decker is a historic triple-decker at 43 Suffolk Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The house was built c. 1890, and was noted for its well-preserved Queen Anne styling[2] when it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1] A number of these details, including cut shingle panels between the windows of the projecting front bay, and the turned posts and decorative brackets of the porch, have been lost or obscured (see photo). Many of the early tenants were Irish immigrants, drawn to work in nearby factories and railroad yards.[2]
