James T. Carroll House and Shop
J.T. Carroll (1829-1895) was a Brookville cobbler who was also associated with James K. Hamilton in the manufacture of harnesses. Described as a "veteran shoemaker," in an 1888 county history, Carroll built this Italianate style residence and business following an 1874 fire in this block. The second-floor porch was likely added in the 1920s. All of the ornamental detail on the facade and cornice is of cast iron or pressed metal. For many years the first story served as Donner and Oakes' service station; the addition to the left originally contained automotive service bays.
