    • 17 and 19 Water [Wyatt] St. East

      These twin houses were built by the well-known local mason, Charles Wilken. (Wilken did the masonry on the Great West Felt factory at the north end of Elmira; it is still in excellent shape after eighty years.) He built No. 19 for himself about 1907 and then built No 17 shortly thereafter for his wife's sister who wanted an identical house. One difference between the original buildings was in the foundation blocks; Charles' son Walter, relates that the sister-in-law and her husband spent evenings through the winter making the blocks for No. 17 by hand. The geometric latticework or treillage (a Regency feature) over the verandas is a special feature of these houses. The turned posts are also original, and the bottom railing of the upper veranda on No. 17 is probably original while that of No. 19 has been replaced. Notice also the delicate scrollwork at the top of the Italianate round-headed windows.1a
