Halley House

Somewhat less elaborate than the Robertson House, but equally dignified, is the Capt. Halley House, built ca. 1860,is built of wood-frame construction with clapboard siding, and has an ell-shaped plan. It exhibits Greek Revival symmetry and proportions in its five-bay fronts which feature double-hung windows with six-over-six lights, and pedimented two-story porticoes supported by square columns. Also typical is the use of simple cornice molding, as well as the presence of a central entrance marked with double doors, transom, and sidelights.
