DESCRIPTION

Setting

South side of Maclean Street between the church on the corner of Witherspoon Street and a modern townhouse group on the west (right) side. The driveway on the west side leads to a two bay detached garage in the back corner of the lot.

Description

Two story rectangular raised foundation gable roof vinyl sided residence on a raised foundation. The ridge is parallel to the street. The long three bay street facade has two full size six over one windows flanking a smaller version in the center. The windows below are paired units of the same type to either side of the front door. All of the openings have vinyl shutters. A three bay hip roof porch extends across most of the front. The center bay at the top of a broad flight of steps is slightly narrower. The west elevation has four windows in a symmetrical arrangement, although the bottom right unit is smaller. The east gable end is bisected by a square brick chimney against the side of the house. There is a flat roof full width enclosed porch below the two second floor windows. A small one story lean to extends halfway across the rear from the SW corner. The rear facade is also three bay on the second floor with two windows on the first floor.

History

This house appears to date to c. 1920. Historic maps and atlases show a vacant lot in this location as late as the Sanborn atlas of 1918. The Franklin Survey atlas of 1930 shows the house. The house is included in the bounds of the AME Church property, which suggests that the house may have been constructed as a parsonage.
