Description 

The Crowell Mitchell House is a two-story Victorian residence built in the 1880s. The house is distinguished by ornamental double-tiered porches which connect flanking bays. Central doorways on each floor are enframed by transoms and sidelights. Three single windows of six-over-six sash pierce the bays. Other architectural features include a plain entablature, pierced sawn porch balustrades, slender wood porch columns and pilasters, a beltcourse of wood extending the front fašade and molded with window caps. The house is set on a brick foundation. The hipped roof is covered with composition shingles. Architecturally, this house is a singularly intact Victorian specimen of this style in the Central Midlands Region. It is a typical middle-class residence with spacious simple rooms, large window area, and scrollwork balustrades. Listed in the National Register July 6, 1982. - SCDAH

I appears as if this landmark may have been demolished.
