Harlan-Lincoln House

-A A +A
pre-1854. 101 W. Broad St.

An essentially Greek Revival house has merged into the Italianate through its bracketed eaves, the verticality of its windows, and its porch with thin wooden piers. A low monitor unit with four small horizontal windows crowns the center of the hipped roof. To the side, on the first floor, is a side-by-side pair of rectangular bays. Old photographs of the house show a veranda that extended across the entire front and along the left side of the building.
