422 North Street

circa 1850s


By Christian C. Carey

This house is a two and a half brick Greek revival house. The structure is a three by four bay rectangular volume. The house has a gable end orientation on the north side of North Street. The first floor entrance is located in the south façade and is offset to the west. The entrance door is flanked by two three quarter high side lights and has an oversized lintel. Two windows to the east are symmetrically balanced and are six over six sash double-hung windows. The second floor has three double hung windows of the same proportion and also six over six sashes aligned with the first floor openings. The full pediment has a fixed nine light window with a gabled brick arch for a lintel. This lintel is typical construction in this style, location and time period of construction. The roof plane is penetrated by four brick chimney stacks. This house is in a good state of preservation and contributes to the neighborhood as a typical example of Greek Revival construction for this neighborhood.
