Distinguished by the use of the decorative bargeboard trim with pendants and finial along the gable roof eave, this circa 1860 2 and half storey wood frame house is a fine example of the mid-19th Century Carpenter Gothic style. Note the quietly articulated 2-over-2 single hung windows with their top sash’s arched panes, which can still be found in other buildings throughout the Old City areas, but often shrouded behind aluminum storm windows. The added attic dormer window helps accentuate the verticality of this compact residence, which was of fundamental importance to the Gothic Revival.
