F.A. TOEPLEMANN HOUSE -- Statement of Significance: F.A. Toeplemann was listed as a landlord by the U.S. Census and lived on the lower level. Pieter McIntire, a Scottish immigrant who worked in the woolen mills, and Bill Stone, an attorney, were later occupants.

This 1-1/2 story house sits under a front gable roof, with a shallow hip roof over the entry on the west side. This hip also covers a small rectangular bay to the north of the porch. The porch features a decorative turned column at the southwest corner, a low stick balustrade, and a spindle work frieze. The main gable features enclosed eaves above the wide frieze and rake boards and stickwork in the gable ends. The house is clad with V-groove drop siding at the first-floor level, and the gable ends feature a variety of imbrication patterns including fishscale and diamond courses. A small decorative string course separates the siding types, and the imbrication is slightly battered above the belt course. The windows in the house are all 1/1 double-hung wood sash with lambs tongues, board trim, and prominent hood moldings at the first-floor level. The house also features a central brick chimney with a corbelled cap and a small porch at the northeast corner under a shed roof that is supported by turned columns with scrollwork brackets.
