The Young House (c. 1900)

Since it was built around the turn of the century, many families have called the Folk Victorian farmhouse at 414 Owen Avenue home. The house has a gable front and wing, with a two-tiered porch in the L.
Most homes of this vintage and style have wooden porch supports (either square posts or Queen Anne-type turned spindles), but the lower tier here has square, brick columns. These may have been added with the second story after a fire destroyed much of the original wood-frame house.
Adam and Erica Young are the most recent owners and have made a number of improvements to the home, which features many fireplaces and refinished heart-pine flooring.
