The Ellett House at 409 Roanoke Street, seen on the bottom, is a large, two-story, frame dwelling which conceals its traditional center-passage plan behind a projecting, gabled bay to one side of the central entry. The large, brick house on the top, located at the east corner of Roanoke and Penn streets, includes a colossal pedimented porch supported by two Doric columns and eight-over-eight sash windows. The house may derive more from pattern-book interpretations of Federal and Colonial-era house plans than from a regional source.
