The Shingle style was an eclectic Victorian movement most popular between 1880-1900. Shingle style houses need not be covered in shingles but need at least one prominent feature containing them, therefore, my best identification for this house. I’ve seen this identified as being originally owned by George Pease but haven’t confirmed it at this time. Whatever the details, it’s a great house.
This was first home to Union Congregational Church, founded in 1892 by an Ohio-born minister in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union hall. The early members were from New England and the Midwest and part of the prohibition settlement that became Demorest. As the Congregationalists never had a large membership, they merged with Demorest Methodist Church in 1947 and remain active today.
