Yep, Maxwell’s is still there. I haven’t been there since seeing They Might Be Giants and R.E.M. there about twenty years ago. Damn, I’m old.
This was an interesting old house, huge Victorian built about 1885. Two of those masonry columns supported each of the chimneys, which ended at the first floor fireplaces. None of the three chimneys extended all the way to the basement. It appears that this column was hollowed out by removing some of the internal wyths and had the boiler/waterheater flues shoved in. This then (apparently) went to the roof through the flue of one of the abandoned fireplaces. Wacky.
Anyway, I do a summary page on my report. Item number one on this house was that the prospective buyers rent that Myrna Loy movie "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House".
