More About This House

200 Washington Avenue
Chestertown, MD 21620

American Four-Square, constructed 1908 and located in the Chestertown Historic District and Chestertown National Register District. One block to Washington College and Garrett Elementary School, one block to town square, walking distance to farmer’s market, downtown shopping, and campus. Two blocks from the Chester River Hospital and Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company, four blocks from Chestertown Middle School. Light-filled corner lot, with driveway and garage access on a side-street (Kent Street).

This three-story residence was erected in 1908 for Frederick Usilton in the ‘Four-Square” style. Constructed by Chestertown master-builder Walter Pippin, the brick construction, tall windows, wrap-around porch, restrained trim, and graceful dormer window treatments make it one of the most imposing structures along Washington Avenue. Unlike many of the Victorian buildings along Washington Avenue, with their detailed trim and “gingerbread,” this house is more restrained and shows clear links to the Arts and Crafts Movement of the early 20th Century. A pre-1945 brick, two-bay garage has a pyramidal metal roof with wide over-hanging eaves, attributes that echo those found on the main house.

Particularly noteworthy are the cement window sills and lintels; the cement water table; the matching rails around the porch roof, widow’s walk and side entry; the gable window details; interior pocket doors in the parlor; interior paneled doors throughout the house; and the beautiful woodwork of the foyer and main stairs.
