The William Zottman House,
circa 1850s


By R. F. Panepinto

Another of what is a typical design for Greek Revival residences in Burlington. The main block is a gable front, brick load bearing structure resting on a stone foundation. On the left, a pedimented porch protects the front side hall entrance. The porch is one bay by three bays wide, wraps around the south side, and has turned posts, balusters, and brackets. Windows are two over two double hung sashes symmetrically arranged. The gable features cornice returns and a triangular blind gable window. The wood truss roof is covered with slate. A later clapboard clad addition attaches to the rear of the house.
This house saw the longest occupation by a single owner in this area. William Zottman, a carriage maker and superintendent of streets resided here from 1867 to 1927. The house is presently used for apartments. (1)
