The Cherry House, 740 High Street
I can find no information on this little cottage that once belonged to the Cherry family and stood at 740 High St., today the site of the east entrance to City Hall. The house was probably constructed about 1870 as the porch supports strongly resemble those of the Peters and Dunn houses that were built in the late 1860's. While the exterior was a little on the plain side the interior made up for it with typical Victorian exuberance. The walls and curtains have been decorated with pine bows and leaves for some unknown celebration. All in all it's a very pleasant room.
