MARTHA PATTERSON HOUSE
NR nomination: Named for one of its former owners, the wife and widow of H. H. "Hoot" Patterson, the house is a two-story triple-A vernacular dwelling enframed with cornerposts, a hipped porch with Classical Revival members, a multi-paned gable window and a single-story rear extension. It also features returned gables and an entry transom.
In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
2015 Survey Update: The triple-A-roofed house is three bays wide and single-pile with a two-story, hip-roofed wing at the left rear (southeast). It has plain weatherboards, one-over-one wood-sash windows, a wide fascia with partial cornice returns, and a diamond-light window in the front gable. The one-light-over-two-panel door has a one-light transom and is sheltered by a near-full-width, hip-roofed porch supported by columns. A one-story, gabled wing extends from the right rear (southwest) with a one-bay-deep gabled addition, with a lower roofline, at its rear.
