Situated on the corner of Fourth Street and Rowan Avenue across from the entrance to the Spencer Library, the J. K. Dorsett House is one of Spencer’s best known houses. The two-story frame house was built for banker J. K. Dorsett and his family. Its dominant style is Queen Anne with a front gable and one-story porch wrapping around the Rowan Avenue side of the house. The house also has Colonial Revival features which include the Tuscan columns on the porch and a more simplified detailing than is typical of Queen Anne’s. The combination of architectural styles creates an interesting and impressive house. Photo by Sean Meyers
