Marker Text Built in 1848 by Albert M. Arnot, a blacksmith, this house features characteristics of Greek revival and Creole styling. Four rooms were originally located on the main floor. The basement area, constructed above ground, housed a dining room, harness shop, and cellar. Later owners included Francis Lang, a German mill operator, Dora Bernstein (d. 1890), the wife of a local Jewish merchant, and Joseph Black (1881-1955), an Irish cobbler who built his shop here.
