Throwback Thursday: The Palmer House
This Throwback Thursday, we take a look at the Palmer House on Duke Of Gloucester Street in the Historic Area. Earliest records for the Palmer House lot begin in 1718. When the building was restored in 1952, a large addition that had been constructed in 1857 was destroyed so that the house could be returned to its original 1700s character.
Today, many people know the structure for its unique holiday decorations: Apples are placed in the “putlog holes” — recessed spaces in the home’s facade.
