Representative of the substantial listings in the East Side Historic District, this Queen Anne house illustrates the close proximity to the business district preferred by the town's elite. This central-hall-plan house is exuberantly detailed with a corner domed tower, wraparound porch, gabled roofs and dormers, contrasting gray-painted shingles and white trim, and a variety of window sizes and shapes.
