Charles Wetzel House

-A A +A
c. 1885, Charles Wetzel. 100 Church St.

For his own house, architect Wetzel interpreted the Queen Anne style in brick with white trim. Like his Thomas Beaver Free Library ( MT6), the massive house dominates the end of the block with a three-story octagonal tower at the corner. A stone foundation, shingles and spindlework on the upper level, projecting bay and porch on the front, two-story porches on the side elevation, and varied rooflines give the building great appeal. Wetzel's office was at 251 Mill Street.
