Here is The Masonic Center in Kent

The Marvin Kent House built in 1884 is now the Masonic Center. That is 148 years ago and it's still standing proudly. Marvin Kent was one of the founders of the town of Kent, Ohio. The house has an interesting history and you can read more on the above link. This house is om Main Street in Kent. The architecture is outstanding with the tower. You can click on the picture to see even more detail. You don't build houses like this anymore and much of the ability of the tradesmen to build this has been lost. I zoomed in for a close-up of the tower.
A closer shot to show the intricate design on the top of the tower.
