Kate Duval House

Built in 1902, this charming Queen Anne Cottage features a large front slanted bay window with a shingled pediment, sunburst brackets, and decorative blocks.  The front porch was enclosed at a later date.  The property was owned by Kate Duval, wife of Eugene W. Duval who owned a hardware store on Main Street .  The Duval Family lived in the house next door at 943 E. Main Street and used this house as a rental.  The house is significant as one of several houses built along Main Street between 1902 and 1905 that has maintained its character and integrity over the years.
