Notes
Survey number HABS WV-210-15
Significance: This house is an exact contemporary of its neighbor, 4208 Malden Drive, both dating from 1838. However, its derivation from the Federal style is much more direct, having both the simplicity and the symmetry one would expect. The major recent change to the principal facade, a front porch built to replace an earlier porch which was recently destroyed, is sympathetic to the original mode though not a duplicate of its predecessor. The interior spatial arrangement of the building has been altered very little during its lifetime. Both the lack of substantial internal renovation and the careful maintenance of the exterior have left the town a very well-preserved example of its more imposing early nineteenth-century residences. The house is rated by the National Register Nomination Form as making a major contribution to the Malden Historic District.
