Architectural Description

601 W. High is a small Greek Revival house that was built around 1870. The house has a hall and parlor plan and a steeply sloped gable roof. The house also has a small side wing with a steeply sloped roof. The house is covered with white horizontal wood siding. The corners of the house are accented by vertical trim. The main entrance of the house is covered by a simple one-story exterior entry porch which is supported by spindles. The windows of the house are tall thin double-hung windows with classical window surrounds. The house has a large dormer window that breaks the roof line which can be found above the main entrance. The rear of 601 W. High has a complex roof line with stacking dormer windows and a slight gambrel roof. The dormers are covered with rectangular wood shingles. Small two-over-two light windows are present in the dormers. Below the stacking dormer windows is a recessed side porch which is supported by simple square classical columns of the Doric order. The porch has a simple square balustrade. The house has a tall brick chimney. The cornice of the house is accented by white wood trim. 601 W. High is a quirky example of an early Greek Revival house with a simple hall and parlor plan.
