(3) The Gibson House

Built: 1911

Address: 745 North River Street

The broadside Gibson House, or Flat Iron building, resembles a peninsula surrounded by streets on three sides. Because of the odd shaped lot, the architect was faced with a difficult design. But the result was an attractive two-story, quarry-faced stone structure that serves as the northern entry point to downtown. Fenestrations for this structure show that the building served as an apartment house; other features include a denticulatred cornice and large foundation stones supporting the building weight.
