Excerpt from "Welcome to the Heritage Perth Walking Tour": Built in 1830 in Federalist style by Daniel McMartin, Perth's second lawyer. The unique feature is the 'widow's walk' on the top of the house.

According to Wikipedia: A widow's walk, also known as a "widow's watch" (or roofwalk), is a railed rooftop platform often with a small enclosed cupola frequently found on 19th-century North American coastal houses. A popular romantic myth holds that the platform was used to observe vessels at sea. The name is said to come from the wives of mariners, who would watch for their spouses' return, often in vain as the ocean took the lives of the mariners, leaving the women widows.
