10 Eighth Avenue
The Clarence
Built in 1882 for Samuel B. Downes of S.B. Downes and Co., this 2 1/2 story cottage has Carpenter Gothic mill work on porch and eaves. Shingles are pale pink, porch columns and trim darker pink, some molding is medium green. Columns are topped by white gingerbread under the eaves. A multi-paned squre window known as "Queen Anne sash" is set in the front left wall.

Triplet Houses?
Three cottages at 10 Eighth Avenue, 12 Eighth Avenue, and 16 Eighth Avenue were built as neighbors in 1882, 1883, and 1885. All three had identical building footprints, a vernacular Victorian style, curving front roof lines and five-column front porch. but a close comparison reveals noteworthy differences. The big surpise is that one was moved halfway around the circling avenue.
