Brick Cottages

-A A +A
Late 1850s. East side of U.S. 219, on ridge north of hotel

These two-story brick twins stand on solid limestone foundations. Each is three bays broad, with a central bay fronted by a two-tiered porch. Shallow hipped roofs, each pierced by two interior chimneys, cover both buildings. The cottages are Greek Revival in proportion and detail, but minuscule brackets on the broad cornice soffits provide a modicum of Italianate flavor. Among the last buildings constructed at the resort, these are the only survivors of a once longer cottage row.
