This home features a central Gothic dormer, flanked by two Scottish dormers, making it quite striking. The two Scottish dormers stand directly above first-storey bay windows. Ornamental mouldings decorate the wide cornerboards, ending in returned eaves.

 

History:   

This home was the manse for the Presbyterian church from 1858 to 1880, when  the trustees decided to trade it for the home of James Curll-- 45 Maple St. The new home was closer to their new church building. James A. Curll (the first Town Clerk) lived in the home.
