132 Waterloo Row

Of Chestnut Canoe distinction, this eclectic hip-roofed house was built for company owner Harry Chestnut and his wife Annie in 1902, quite possibly by R. Chestnut & Sons, who were "Builders and Contractors" in addition to hardware merchants. The foremost attributes of the house are undoubtedly the full-height columns with unusual "mini-columned" capitals and the pair of decorated dormers. Custom woodwork and luxurious brass hardware enrich the spacious interior, while the upper front balcony’s floor deck is covered with - what else - canoe canvas. Amazingly, only recently has the original boiler system been replaced, which had heated the building ever since it was built.
