Mansard Building

Property Details

c. 1870 (Second Empire) This brick house with sophisticated proportion is largely intact making it singularly important to the Historical District. The straight mansard roof, with a beautiful fish scale shingle slate pattern, molded cornices, wide overhanging eave with decorative single brackets, is interrupted by front and side-gables. Simple round window surrounds with original fitting windows and shutters plus chamfered porch supports with small spandrels are details to cherish.
