  • Stephen and Martha Bates–H. Champlin House (John M. Miller)

This is a finely detailed, hip-roofed Greek Revival residence with fluted Doric columns supporting a porch that continues around three sides of the house. Parts of the facade are ornamented with asymmetrically spaced pilaster-like panels, perhaps the work of a local carpenter-builder. The entrance, at the left of the street facade, is set back from the road behind mature hedges on a small embankment. Carriage sheds, a privy, and a well head are at the rear of the property. Next door, at 516 Route 112, is a much more modest residence with a well-preserved eyebrow fan window on each gabled end.
