6. Winslow House, 1894

A tall 3-story house.
This beautiful Queen Anne style home was built in the 1880s. It features a corner tower, wrap around porch, and decorative pediment over the 2nd story porch. In 1913, a fire blazed through the third floor and the charred wood still remains there. Fay (Fayette) Winslow married Waldo Tracy, and built this home, one of the first homes in the new Downer Place addition which Mr. Winslow was instrumental in promoting. They had four children, Anna, Martha, Lawson and Knelm.
