Prescott in Yavapai County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
East Union Street
Homes were built by Henry Goldwater, C.A. Peter and Jake Marks. The Henry Goldwater House at 217 E. Union, was built in 1894 in a Victorian Melange style. A conical roof on the southwest corner suggests a turret even though none actually exists. Goldwater was one of the brothers who founded Goldwater Mercantile Company. The C. A. Peter House at 211 E. Union was the last one to be built on the block. It is a Queen Anne interpretation of the Victorian style and is one of the most significant Victorians in Prescott. Mr. Peter was a cashier at the Bank of Arizona when he built the house in 1898. Jake Marks
