octagonal gable. The one-story porch, supported by wood columns and containing spindlework railing and lace-like brackets, is small, and has a flat roof. The Ginocchio-Cook-Pedison home has receieved very few alterations and remains much in its original state. A fifth porch from the northeast corner was removed along with all but one of the chimneys. Every family who has owned the home have preserved the history and the architectural integrity of the structure, providing Marshall with a beautiful example of Victorian architecture.
