Cloudsberry Kirby House


Cloudsberry Kirby, who built the house next to the Tred Avon River in 1791, was a joiner who made and installed cabinets and trim. Although tiny by today’s standards the house is full of beautiful carpentry details.

Grander Eastern Shore buildings such as Radcliff Manor, directly across the river, and the Bullitt House, in downtown Easton, share many of the same design details, such as the narrow, diagonal reeding on the mantel.

Once part of a village lining Port Street, the amazingly intact house now has just one neighbor house. The owner, Talbot County, has engaged Encore to document the existing conditions with photographs and measured drawings.
