Address: 406 East High Street
Architectural Style: Greek Revival
Year Built: c. 1854
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

Built sometime around 1854, this Greek Revival house was most likely built under the direction of William Wright.  Wright was a wealthy farmer from the nearby Village of Gambier.  It is unknown whether he lived in the home or simply used it as a rental property.  Its robust front-facing pediment is characteristic of the basic temple shape found in Greek Revival architecture.  In addition, the sidelights and transom surrounding the front door, as well as the original 6-over-6 paned windows are further exhibitions of Greek Revival.  Aluminum siding and the cast-iron front porch were added sometime in the 1960s, although the small rear addition was likely added in the late-19th century.
