Address: 201 East Vine Street
Architectural Style: Italianate
Year Built: c. 1861
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Jonathan N. Burr

Jonathan N. Burr, a prominent local doctor, built this home shortly before the Civil War.  In the late-1850s, Burr had purchased a larger house on East High Street, which was his home.  He likely built this house and its neighbor to serve as rental properties.

This fine Italianate house has many characteristics of that style, including a wide cornice supported by alternating large and small brackets.  The very ornate front porch is most likely a later 20th century addition, as  well as the tall French windows.  The sidelights and transom surrounding the front door and a two-story octagonal bay accents the front facade.
