c. 1890. 811 Main St. (west side of Main St. between 8th and 9th sts., opposite Christ Church)

This miniature Queen Anne cottage compensates for its small size with exuberant detail. The Eastlake porch extends as an open polygonal bay on one side, almost counterbalancing the larger polygonal bay of the facade on the opposite end. Above this bay is a steep front gable sheathed in fish-scale shingles.
