512 Carlton, 1980

This one-story, front-gable house is three bays wide and triple-pile. Clad with wood weatherboards the house has a brick foundation, two interior brick chimneys, and an asphalt- shingled roof. It features a projecting front gable supported by slender round columns that shelters the recessed porch. The outside columns rest on brick piers while the interior columns extend all the way to the porch floor. The span between the two center columns is cut in a segmental arch. Fenestration includes three-over-one windows throughout and gable vents in the house and porch gables. The front door is an original three-light over three-panel solid wood door. The house mirrors the house at 602 Carlton Avenue. The house appears on the 1937 Sanborn map and its earliest known resident is Roy T. Spain in 1939.
