National Register #84002080
McCarthy-Platt House
1000 Plumas Street
Built 1900

The McCarthy-Platt House is a excellent example of Colonial Revival architecture derived from the restrained Classical style.

Although the house was built around 1900, the main style elements result from a major renovation by architect Frederic DeLongchamps in 1925. The changes included the large semi-circular portico with Tuscan columns and classical details.

When we photographed the building in March 2016, it was listed for rent on Airbnb as The Plumas House.
