The Charles Brown House features the architecture of the Second Empire, which was most popular during the 1860s-1880s. Distinctive characteristics of the Charles Brown House include: 12-foot ceilings, a door with an original doorbell, an ingenious revolving-wall panel room vent, windows with porcelain-knobbed latches and an almost impossibly steep, winding stairway. Other examples of its Second Empire architecture include its flat roof, tower, decorative brackets, and decorative molding on windows and doors. It is fortunate that we are still able to experience the historic value of this architectural landmark.
