North Main Street Cottages
31 North Main Street

The four small wood frame vernacular houses located immediately north of the canal on North Main Street date from the middle of the nineteenth century. The two houses located on the east side of the street retain distinctive Italianate style details including paired half-round windows and a bracketed entrance canopy. Although modest in size and simple in design, this group is significant as a remaining example of typical village housing from the mid-nineteenth-century.

Several of the homes have historic ties to the canal. The Lusk House (31 North Main Street served as a canal tavern for many years. The two houses located on the east side of North Main Street were owned by the Schoen family who operated a large produce and coal business on Schoen’s Alley.
