c. 1855; 402 3rd St. W.

The gable front of this small Greek Revival cottage faces toward the street. The entrance is particularly handsome, with thin Tuscan columns separating the side lights from the door; above, the shaft of a column has been used as a header separating the top of the door from the very narrow transom above. This whole composition is set into the brick wall with a low-pitched pediment above.
