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.
