c. 1893. Southwest corner Franklin and 3rd streets

The handsome late Queen Anne-Colonial Revival design of this house exhibits all the prerequisites of the mode: a three-story corner bay tower, a horizontal band of fishscale shingles, Palladian windows in the third-floor dormer, and an extensive veranda with a roof supported by clustered columns. A semi-circular projection of the porch at one corner has its own low-pitched conical roof and extravagant finial on the crown.
