177_King
Address: 177 King Street
Heritage Status: Recognized
Built: 1895
Builder/Architect: Likely George Naugler
Style: Bracketed, Maritime Vernacular

 

Architecture:

  • Unique house has truncated gable (low grambrel) roof
  • Intact except for bottom floor windows
  • Interesting turned posts and brackets on front veranda
  • Returning eaves noticeable in corners

 

History:

  • Lot originally owned by George Naugler, a shipwright
  • Sold to Arthur Munroe in 1895 for $650
  • Deed mentions buildings, but owner as of 1985 was informed it had been built by Munroe, and $650 seems relatively little to pay for a house at that point in time
  • Monroe was a fish and supply merchant, also listed in a census as a “clerk”
