Omar Currier House

-A A +A
1889. 12 Howard St.

This house, built for a grocer, is a charming carpenter's version of Queen Anne. All upper window frames are cornered with disks. To the modern eye it appears just the place for Mickey and Minnie Mouse. More disks occur in paneling on the bays and in a delightful variation on the colonial scroll pediment in the attic window.
