 The Peter Gregory House was built c.[[1860]] and sits on Beaver Road in the East Bend Bottoms. ​ The house is an outstanding representation of the Gothic Revival style in [[Boone County]]. ​ It is the county’s closest approximation of the “Downing Cottage” popularized by Andrew Jackson Downing in the mid-19th century.  ​ The Peter Gregory House was built c.[[1860]] and sits on Beaver Road in the East Bend Bottoms. ​ The house is an outstanding representation of the Gothic Revival style in [[Boone County]]. ​ It is the county’s closest approximation of the “Downing Cottage” popularized by Andrew Jackson Downing in the mid-19th century.  ​

 With porches (now collapsed) facing both the road and the river, the house has in effect two facades. ​ Curvilinear baseboards in the form of stylized Vitruvian scrolls are found along the eaves, with pendants at the apex of each gable. ​ The interior includes a wealth of eclectic detailing in the Italianate, Gothic Revival and Greek Revival modes. ​ The land extends southward to the Ohio River, and Gunpowder Creek meanders through the southern end of the property.  ​ With porches (now collapsed) facing both the road and the river, the house has in effect two facades. ​ Curvilinear baseboards in the form of stylized Vitruvian scrolls are found along the eaves, with pendants at the apex of each gable. ​ The interior includes a wealth of eclectic detailing in the Italianate, Gothic Revival and Greek Revival modes. ​ The land extends southward to the Ohio River, and Gunpowder Creek meanders through the southern end of the property.  ​
