Constructed in 1890, this Victorian cottage is a one story weatherboarded dwelling under a gabled roof. A gabled projecting central porch is supported by four regularly spaced slender posts of wood which are repeated in porch pilasters and corner boards. A rail balustrade ornaments the porch, which opens to a central doorway enframed with multi-paned transom and sidelights. Both front and end gables display cornice returns and centered, diamond shaped windows. Corbeled chimneys straddle the composition roof ridge. All windows are six-over-six under triangular caps. The house is set on a lattice brick foundation. The house was built by Misses Alice and Marcella Jones, sisters. Listed in the National Register July 6, 1982. - SCDAH
