Stacks Image 401
This is a two-story frame residence with wood corner and barge boards, side-gabled roof, rear slope red-brick masonry chimneys, rear shed roof lean-to, rear cross gable, and one-story partial-width front porch. The building is oriented with its east (side) elevation facing High Street and its façade oriented south. There is a small one-story block with shed roof on the west (side) elevation. Fenestration consists of two-over-two double-hung sash. The front porch has square supports and a shed roof. The building is sheathed in horizontal board siding and patterned wood shingles.

This house is architecturally significant as a well-preserved example of a Colonial residence with alterations from the Victorian period. Local records indicate that the house was built as a side-gabled structure c. 1710, and sustained alterations resulting in its partial saltbox-style profile at a later time. Changes to the windows and the application of exterior wood framing and patterned wood shingles likely took place c. 1890, during the popularity of the Queen Anne and Stick styles. The residence is present on maps from 1859 and 1874, and on the latter is listed as the property of an A. DuPane. DuPane can not be found in the 1870 or 1880 Federal Census records, however, by 1930, the residence was that of Carl L. Winberg, a 50-year old commercial trades brusher.
