Charles Cotton House // 1875

The Charles Cotton House in Nashua, NH was built in 1875 and is an excellent example of Stick Victorian architecture for a residence. The home was built for Cotton, a grocer who lived in the home until the late 19th century. The house has a hipped roof with a corner tower with iron cresting, decorated window frames, bracketed cornices and a balcony with turned columns and decorated aprons. The home has a distinctive paint scheme, while unconventional, it still accentuates the many architectural details of the property.
