Note:

The plain 2-story house is believed to be the house Holt built for coachmaker Thomas Burrows or Burroughs, as documented in an 1846 contract, wherein Burrows promised to pay Holt in goods, including a buggy and a wagon. It typifies Holt’s flexibility of building form and finish to suit the purpose and budget of the building.
