Clerc-Carson House

-A A +A
c. 1880. 121 North St. (southwest corner of 7th and North sts.)
  • Clerc-Carson House (State Historic Preservation Office, West Virginia Division of Culture and History)

A polygonal bay window projects from the first floor of this T-shaped Italianate brick house. The bracketed cornice of the window bay mimics the larger bracketed cornice of the house itself, which supports a low hipped roof. A later one-story front porch follows the footprint of the original. As is typical of the Italianate style, the windows have gentle segmental heads.
