Built in 1880, this is one of the few buildings in Northville with Italinate architecture, so it goes straight up, instead of having the Victorian porches, etc. Check out the gables (the supports to the overhanging roof and the "eyebrows" over the windows. Something you can't see is that the house is "balloon construction", which means it has double-walls for additional strength. To learn more about Italinate construction, see the link attached to the photograph.
Locals often call it The Wedding Cake house (look at it again and you will say "Oh yes, it does look like...").
