|Address:||208 North Gay Street|
|Year Built:||c. 1866|
|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.
