Built in 1906-07 by African American William Louis Carter, this vernacular Queen Anne style house features an unusual exterior shape. It is popularly known as the "Steamboat House” because its shape suggests the outline of a ship, with a sharply angled projecting bay at one end resembling a ship's bow and a curved projecting bay at the other end suggesting a stern. The Carter-Calloway House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
