Near the center of the town, at the northeast corner of Third and Linda streets, is Saint Patrick's Roman Catholic Church (1901). The side walls of this stone-sheathed church with a gable roof are low, with the roof eaves brought close to the ground, so that each of the principal windows occurs within a small wall dormer. A small corner entrance tower adds to the dollhouse scale of this Gothic Revival church.

At 1716 Willis Avenue is an Eastlake-style dwelling (c. 1885) with a pair of two-story bays brought out at a 45-degree angle from the adjoining walls. A later Colonial Revival porch has been added to the house. Further down Willis Avenue, at 1908, is a 1920s period revival English cottage (c. 1926). Its pointed-arched entrance is in stone, which contrasts with the brick first-floor walls and the stucco and half-timbering above.
