This unique Gothic Revival house was built in 1881, and maintains a high level of architectural integrity. It is a very late Gothic Revival, with massing and form more like a Queen Anne. This building has a number of interesting details, like the lintels on the first story windows, cross hipped roofs and the white stringcourse between the first and second floors. What stands out, however, is the two-sided, two-story bay windows topped with tall, narrow gables with large, ornate bargeboards.
This home was built for tobaccanist and cigar maker Clark Selover by local builder Charles Van Order.
