This Second Empire style house was the third house Paul Howland built for himself. Howland had lived across the way at 94 State Street since 1846, but in 1872 he acquired the land and moved into this house in 1877. This home is an example of Second Empire Style and shows a mansard roof pieced by ornate, pediment dormer windows. Along the cornice line are elaborate carved brackets. The central tower with its triple arched window and its own high mansard roof contributes to the verticality which is typical of the Second Empire Style.
