Sexton House

In 1884 the Evergreen Cemetery Board of Trustees resolved to build a cottage near the south entrance of the cemetery.  Construction was completed in November of 1886.  The cottage was rebuilt in 1907 in the Queen Anne style using a design by Theodore Valerius, a local architect.  The Sexton House has also been referred to as the caretaker’s cottage and the rest house.  It has been used for a variety of purposes including a place for visitors to gather, a former meeting place for the board of trustees,  and for storage.  The building is a local landmark because of its history and its Queen Anne style architecture.
