431 North Street

circa 1850s


By Christian C. Carey

This is a one and a half story wood framed Gothic Revival house. The structure is a three by two bay volume capped with a gabled roof and a central wall dormer. There is a one by two front porch which is thought to be added in 1933. (1) The houses original date of construction is not known but it pre dates the 1853 map. This vernacular Gothic Revival style is not common to the area and is one of a few still standing. (1) The house is in an excellent state of preservation and contributes to the diversity of styles located in its upper North Street neighborhood.
