Our Historic Location
303 East Court Street was built in 1858 by George Barnes, a master builder who is best known for his work for William Morris & Tallman in 1855, as a supervisor of construction of the Tallman House. The Tallman House project occupied Barnes for two years, and provided the funds to build this elegant cream brick Italianate double house with bracketed eves, a dentil course at the frieze and limestone cornice lintels at the front facade. It once had two entrances, two staircases, two basements and even two cisterns. Each side was originally separated from the other by a thick central wall. The home has had sensitive adaptations for use as professional offices.
