Description:
1999 Tour
Comments:
In 1882, Robert Corson, a director for the Berkey & Gay Furniture Company, built this Queen Anne style home. Characterized by the extensive use of wood shingles and long, sweeping roof lines, the "New England" look even incorporated a unique bungalow style porch. Once inside, the ample room and hall sizes contradict the styling of the home's exterior. Built without indoor plumbing, baths were added around 1900 and have a most unique feature --ceramic tiling not only on the floors, but on the walls and entire ceilings.
