Description

Close-up view of the front entrance of the Robert Carter House taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. Restoration of the structure between 1931-1932 involved removal of the two story Doric portico added in the nineteenth century. While the hanging pediment over the door is visible in this photo, the porch columns and decorative railings seen on the house today were not restored until the early 1950s.
