House

-A A +A
c. 1870 and later. 819 Prospect St.

This two-story brick house would appear to have been originally an Italianate dwelling to which was added a two-story entrance porch. Four Ionic columns support a gabled roof whose pitch levels out at the eave ends. The gable is filled in with a triangular glass window. The second floor of the porch (originally an open balcony) is now filled in.
