Dr.Hartwell Carver House
41 Monroe Avenue

This cross-gable 2-story house is a distinguished example of the Gothic Revival style. Built of brick the exterior of the house has been overlaid with board-and-batten siding. The steeply pitched raking eaves are embellished with curvilinear barge boards. Pointed-arch windows occur at the gable ends. The house is painted in a historically appropriate color scheme which reflects the view of Romantic period theorist Andrew Jackson Downing that buildings should harmonize with the landscape. The house was enlarged by additions added during the early twentieth century. The house was built for Dr. Hartwell Carver, a local physician who gained national stature for his efforts in promoting the construction of a transcontinental American railroad.
