In many towns and cities there are homes that stand out. Often built by prosperous or influential families, these landmarks may be notable for their age, size or style, the level of ornamentation or unique design characteristics. Conversely, in many towns there are numerous buildings of a similar style or age, size or level of ornamentation that, because of their shared attributes may not necessari ly garner a second glance. The Edmund E. Goodwin house falls cleanly into neither of these categories, although it has elements of both categories. What this house represents is a middle ground between extraordinary and common; it is a house of distinction built by a successful upper middle-class family . But what gives this house added significance is the extent to which it has been preserved.
