392 North Street

circa 1840s


By Christian C. Carey

This house is a brick one and a half story Greek Revival structure typical to the upper North Street neighborhood. The house is a rectangular volume capped with a gable roof. Its gable end entrance is orientated to North Street. A one by three porch has been added to the west façade and wraps around the corner to cover the entrance on the South façade. The West façade also has a shed roof dormer, windows and doors have altered to incorporate arched lintels and wood sills(1). This neighborhood was mainly composed of blue collar and skilled workers. The house contributes as an excellent representation of a Greek Revival home common to this neighborhood
