The Whalen House, circa 1901

     Built in 1901 on the corner of Prince and Reynolds this house was the home of a doctor on Newcastle Street. He like so many doctors of the time traveled by horse and buggy, you can see the stable in the back.

     This classic folk style house is identified by its patterned stick work on a front facing gable. Turned spindles on the front porch give this house Queen Anne details. The front and back parlor are separated by working pocket doors in solid oak. There was a dumb waiter in this house, see if you can find what it is used for now.
