203 Prince Street House
Built in 1834, this late Federal style house was built on land once part of Aaron Burr’s estate. Originally 2½ stories tall, the house had a full third floor added in 1888 (note the change in brick pattern above the second floor windows, from Flemish bond -- alternating long and short sides of brick -- to running bond -- all bricks with long side exposed. Flemish bond brickwork is characteristic of federal architecture, while running bond is more common to late 19th century construction). The elliptically arched entranceway above the high stoop is an impressive example of Federal-style design.
