75 Grant Street

c. 1840's


By R. F. Panepinto

This three bay wide Greek Revival has a front facing, pedimented gable with a blind pointed window. The left, side hall entrance is protected by a pedimented hood with turned posts and brackets. Ionic columns in antis flank the recessed door. An Oculus is centered over the peak of the hood. These details make this house unique in its level of detail. The footprint of this house appears on the 1853 Presdee and Edwards map but is changed on the 1869 Worley map; however, Mr. Walker is identified as the owner on both maps. (1)
