24. Squire House, Circa 1892

Squire House - 2-story, Queen Anne style home
Widow Sara Squire moved from her home at the corner of Spruce and New York Streets when she had this home built in 1892. Even though the Queen Anne style is most easily identifiable, there are also Shingle style elements here, such as the massing (the home doesn't have the tall, vertical feel of most Queen Anne homes), the classical porch columns, and the shingles in the attic gables.
