Address: 410 Chase Avenue
Architectural Style: Gothic Revival
Year Built: c. 1865
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

This modest Gothic Revival house does not retain any of its original decorative elements, but its form makes this architectural style unmistakable.  The roofline, which retains its shaped slate shingles, is primarily a side gable with a smaller cross gable facing Chase Avenue.  The facade is very symmetrical, although entrance is slightly off-centered because of the interior floorplan.  All of the windows, including the small window in the front gable, are long and rectangular, common in Gothic Revival architecture to help emphasize a vertical rather than horizontal appearance.  The full-length front porch is a later addition, replacing what was most likely a smaller entrance portico.
