Address: 204 East High Street
Architectural Style: Queen Anne
Year Built: c. 1889
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

The home was built around 1889 by Michael Boyle and his son James E. Boyle.  The elder Boyle was an Irish-born plaster, and made his home on nearby East Gambier Street.  This house features a tower extending from the second floor with a conical roof, different sized rectangular windows, and an oriel window supporting an interior staircase, giving the home a distinct stick-style Queen Anne appearance.  Use of wooden trim and small brackets under the turret and a small front gable is highlighted by the use of different color paints.  A small triangular pediment, supported by thin Doric columns, surrounds the front door, and replaced a larger two-sided porch that existed until the turn of the twentieth century.
