Collins House, 1892, Claxton

Built for a Mr. Carr in 1892, this Queen Anne house was purchased by the Collins family in 1894. As each of the Collins children grew up, they were given a lot on the block. The neighborhood was known as “Collins Row” and was ruled by Maggie Collins, who was lovingly known as “Big Chief”.

    One hundred, twenty-six years! I love it when a building out-lives its builders. Queen Anne is an esthetically pleasing style of architecture.

    My wife and I lived in this grand old house right after we were married, a lot of fond memories of this place
