Reynolds-Denney Residence

This Victorian “Gingerbread Gothic” was constructed about 1890 by/for Samuel Reynolds. It was a basic Victorian structure with added curlicues, inverted finials, extra scroll work, iron ornamentation and outlined stained glass windows. The A front section housing the attic was sheathed with fish scale shingles, while a side wrapped porch was thrown across the front of the structure. An interesting feature is the tower room with its triangular dormer window treatment. Over 36 double hung windows admit light and provided considerable air movement prior to the advent of modern air conditioning. Miss Henrietta D. Denney was the owner occupant of this house for several decades until her death in the early 1990’s.
