Martini Residence, Williamsburg - This house, at 101 East 4th Street in Williamsburg, PA, was built by Alfonso Martini and his son, Valentino Martini in the early 1900s. A native of Pelos, Italy (near the Austrian border), Alfonso immigrated to Williamsburg about 1892; his wife, Maria Mazzucco Martini, followed in 1903 with their three children. Two more children were later born in Williamsburg; the youngest, Clory Martini Calderone, was my grandmother. This photo is from her collection. The unusual stone house is very similar to the houses back in the Italian alps where the Martinis used to live. Maria Martini raised vegetables in two big greenhouses on the 4th Street property, and sold seedlings to customers from as far away as 25 miles, according to her daughter Clory's written memoir. The family often took in boarders from Italy, young men who were from their province.  Old Family Photo From Clory Martini Calderone  Contributor: Sharon Rooney
