Address: 208 North Gay Street
Architectural Style: Italianate
Year Built: c. 1866
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: John C. Ramsey

This small home, and the house next door, were built by John C. Ramsey around 1866, likely to serve as rental properties.  Ramsey was a cashier with the county’s largest bank, and was associated with a local gas street lighting firm.

The home has basically all the same features as the house next door.  It is dominated by a central gable facing the street.  Segmental windows pierce the façade on both sides of the front door, as well as above it.  A dormer window projects from the gable roof on one side.  A small front porch was likely added in the early-20th century.
