Address: 607 North Main Street
Architectural Style: Italianate
Year Built: c. 1867
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Christian Keller

The home was built by Christian Keller about 1867.  Keller had become wealthy by way of his produce business, in which he bought and sold large quantities of eggs, butter, and other groceries.  He also engaged in the dry goods business and built carriages. 

A hipped roof, a cornice with paired brackets, segmental windows, and shaped stone lintels, are among the home’s original Italianate features.  A transom rests above a pair of double doors with carved lion heads.  A rear servant’s wing with brackets, which projects toward the north, probably is original.  A screened in side porch and matching front porch date from the early-20th century.
