This home is listed as the Sampson House. The fenced portion of the roof near the chimneys is popularly
referred to as a “widow’s walk” in coastal cities. Romantic stories say wives would walk the area waving to their seafaring husbands as they entered or left port. For this home, built in 1900 in the Georgian style, the designed purpose of the platform was to clean the chimneys.
