Address: 201 West Brooklyn Street
Architectural Style: Queen Anne
Year Built: 1903
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

Built by Clark Brown in 1903, the house was later purchased by Harcourt Parish in 1916 for use as a rectory.  It is still used as the parish house for the Episcopal congregation of Gambier.

The most prominent feature of this house is the large 2-story bay projection from the front facade.  The gable of this projection has an attic ventilation window that may have originally been a real window.  If this is the case, the window would most likely have had a large central pane surrounded by a border of smaller panes.  The smaller front gable has a diamond window beneath the eaves.  Above the front porch is a wide triple window.  The house retains wood siding and much of its original trim.
