238 First Street
Mrs. George McKay House "Bundahie" (1904)
Edwardian Classic Box style

This imposing house is an example of the Classic Box style of architecture. Rectangular in shape, it presents a wide front fašade and tall fašades on the sides. The hipped roof has a moderate pitch and ridge running parallel to the front fašade, adding to its wide rectangular appearance. The wrap around front porch is supported by a series of classical columns on top of heavy piers with slanted sides. Mrs. George McKay, a piano teacher, resided in the house for many years.
