505 Green Street

Dorsey Plaginos Ellard House

Built in 1900 by the Dorsey family, this house is the only example of Plantation Plain styling on Green Street. In 1927, the family sold the home to Frank Plaginos, who removed the second porch in a remodel. In recent years, the home was purchased to be used as office space and it is now occupied by corporate tenants.
