ELM COTTAGE

The exterior of this center chimney cape was extensively remodeled in the mid to late nineteenth century. It was built about 1817-1818 by Thomas Pearce, and at that time was a classic Cape Cod style house. The gingerbread trim was added by John Sharland, who owned the house from 1866-1892. The house is on Elm Street, from which it take,s its name. Decorative woodwork was added to the window lintels, gables and to the dormers; which were also a later addition. Elm Cottage has two ells attached in back, one of which is original and the other presumably built later. An interesting feature in the interior is a stairway which passes through the center chimney and has arched brickwork overhead. The house has 7 fireulaces. AFN. JP
