|Title||31 Church Street (Richard Birnie House)|
|Object Type||Property File|
|Scope & Content||
When this clapboard house was constructed, the variety of architectural revivals associated with the Victorian era were very much in vogue. However, the builder chose a conservative design using the Charleston single house plan, one that would fit in with earlier structures on this block of Church Street. The land may very well have belonged to its northern neighbor at #33 as this house closely resembles its neighbor in appearance.
