Address: 309 East Woodside Drive
Architectural Style: I-House; Colonial Revival
Year Built: c. 1860
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

The house was owned by a J. Elliott in 1871, but it is not known who this is or his/her occupation.  By 1896 it was owned by Jane Pool.  The main part of the house is a fine example of a style known as an "I-House."  This style is defined by a central hallway flanked by a single room on either side.  It's facade is very symmetrical, with five bays, a central entrance, and a chimney at both gable ends.  The windows have been replaced by contemporary sashes, but retain a six-pane configuration that would have existed originally.  The full-length porch was added sometime in the early-2000s.  Additions were made to the rear of the home, likely in the mid-20th century.  A 2-story enclosed porch extends from the northeast corner of the house likely built in the 1920s or 1930s.
