Singer-Pitcher House

-A A +A
c. 1865. 301 S. Main St.

The Greek Revival and Italianate are brought together in this two-story hip-roofed dwelling. There are narrow pilasters at the corners of the building and pronounced pediments are present above each of the second-floor windows. The Italianate flavor enters in the general verticality of the design and in the emphasis placed on the main roof cornice with paired brackets. The present cast-iron supports for the front porch are a later addition.
