A History of 212 East Jefferson Street

1886 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map
This is a two story frame (yellow) dwelling. The back portion of the house is single story. The ‘x’ indicates shingle roofing, while the hollow circle shows a slate or tar roof. This is notable as it would imply the location of the kitchen, which holds true with what we were told by the previous owner of this house.
You can see that there’s no porch at this time, but there is the addition of one in later maps. The rectangular protrusion on the right side of the house is a box window, which I’ve seen on many of the houses in town with a similar architecture to mine.
Since these maps are artistic renditions of the house used for fire and insurance purposes the measurements of the house are not exact and vary somewhat from year to year.
