The Jesse Buell house is at 637 Western Avenue in Albany, NY. It is
currently for sale through Tech Valley Homes real estate. You can see
pictures of the exterior and interior, though they don't do it justice. A
1935 photo of the house is also available on the HABS/HAER database on the
Library of Congress American Memory site (search Jesse Buel).
