Just south of the downtown, Cando has a considerable number of large and substantial residences, mostly in Queen Anne and Colonial Revival styles, including several with carriage houses. An eye-catching but oddly proportioned picturesque one-story house (1920), with its entrance in a conical-roofed tower, shares the 3rd Avenue and Main Street corner with a blocky angular Moderne house (1940s) that is oriented at an angle to the street corner.
