Harris House, 1904, Naylor

This is a nice example of the evolution of vernacular architecture at the turn of the last century and illustrates the complications of choosing an architectural identification. Various surveyors might call it a cottage or a house, with such qualifiers as hip-roof, pyramidal, Georgian Cottage, Folk Victorian, and perhaps more. Thanks to Mercy Yates for bringing it to my attention.

  1. Nice old house Brian! Maybe it should be referred to as ”proto carport” LOL! I have cousins who grew up in Naylor.
