J. A. G. Hyatt House

-A A +A
c. 1900. South end of Palace St.

Built for a local businessman, this house is one of the county's best examples of Queen Anne. The two-story brick house has a tall three-stage corner tower topped by a conical roof, polygonal bays, and a wide wraparound porch with Tuscan columns and a pedimented entrance bay. One-over-one sash windows are set within segmental-arched openings, and brick chimneys with decorative caps rise above the house's tall hipped roof.
