Herman Greef House

-A A +A
1863. West side of Bridge St., north of Front St.

The gabled end of this two-story Federal-style house faces the street. The small entrance porch and the bay on the south side of the house are Italianate in design, and their wooden fabric and detailing contrast with the unadorned brick walls of the dwelling.
