The Richard Howden House

10 King Street West

This house was built in 1876 by William O’Brian for Richard Howden, the first reeve of Millbrook. It has many fine architectural features of the Gothic Revival style, including its steep vertical lines and arched windows. Of particular interest is the wide variety of window styles unique to this home, including one described as “prairie style” with a rounded top and offset muntins, which divide the glass into grids.
