Holloway House

-A A +A
c. 1800. Southeast corner of King and Water sts.

This picturesque house began as one and onehalf stories with its dining room connected to the rear by a short hyphen. Later in the nineteenth century it was raised to two stories, and an archaic-looking porch chamber was balanced on piers. A detached rear kitchen has riven clapboards as interior finish.
