The Nelson House


Most of Sanpete’s Victorian cottages are of masonry construction. This charming, wood frame house is an exception, built in about 1905 by a local judge. The one-and-one-half-story home has a cross-wing plan, highly ornamental porch, angular corners on the projecting wing and decorative shingles in the gable, all features of Victorian design. Instead of brick, the lower walls are of horizontal drop-lap or “novelty” siding. A dormer and gable window allow light into the low attic spaces. Except for a few new windows, the quaint house is unaltered. The home has been in the Nelson family for as long as anyone can remember.
