NOTES
Additional Information:Bulit in 1885 as St. Paul's Episcopal Church Rectory, this cream brick house exhibits the multiple steep gable roofs, gable ornaments and hood molds over the windows that are associated with the Gothic revival style. Gabled wall dormers and a rectangular south bay window further characterize this simplified Gothic Revival building.

Part of the St. Paul's Episcopal Church complex nominated to the National Register in 1979, St. Paul's Rectory is significant under Criterion C as one of the very few examples of Gothic Revival residential architecture remaining in the city.
