Located at 9 Library Street is the Jennings-Marvin House. This eclectic home was built in 1897 for Dr. Frank Jennings, a well-respected Dryden physician. Jennie Marvin purchased the property in 1904, and resided here for many years. This house is unique for its combination of Queen Anne and Colonial Revival details. Its most striking feature is a prominent octagonal tower, clad in wood shingles and punctuated by oval windows. The Jennings-Marvin House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
