|Address:||501 East High Street|
|Architectural Style:||Queen Anne|
|Year Built:||c. 1900|
|Original Owner:||S. W. Aldorf|
The home was built around 1900 by J. Patterson for his son-in-law, Sovein W. Alsdorf. Both men were prominent citizens of Mount Vernon. Patterson, who lived next door, was a ticket agent for one of the railroad lines, and Alsdorf was a banker. This large brick home has a number of features that are distinctive to the Queen Anne style, including an octagonal projection, a steep slate roof with overhanging eaves, and large columned front porch with a spindle balustrade. A small dormer window projects from the roof, and features three small windows. All of the windows, of all shapes and sizes, have plain stone lintels.
