Gilbert House

-A A +A
c. 1863. 307 N. Jackson St.

This solid-appearing two-story Greek Revival house exhibits a T-shaped plan. The gable section facing the street to the right has a small lunette window in the attic, and the entrance to the left of the porch exhibits a door with side lights and a transom. The building is sheathed in large ashlar blocks of light-colored limestone. The present piered entrance porch was added sometime after 1900.
