Narrative Description The Hudson-Evans House is a rectangular, three-story Second Empire house. A raised and coursed rough-cut stone foundation supports the red brick walls that are topped by a patterned slate Mansard roof. The facades feature several projecting bays and bay windows ornamented with brackets. Segmental arch hood moldings frame both the windows and the entrances of the house. A porch (not original) fronts the entrance facade and incorporates some of the original Ionic columns. The nearby carriage house matches the main structure in style and materials.
