Dr. James Carmichael House and Office

-A A +A
c. 1780, 1820. 307–309 Hanover St.

The five-bay wood-frame house, built first, follows the conventions of the colonial period with a hipped roof and entrance portico. Dr. Carmichael purchased the house in 1815 and a few years later erected the diminutive templeform brick office and store. The trim boards of the eaves of the store mimic the moldings of the house.
