UPPER LOCUST STREET
34) Dykes/Holliday House
1817

The house, one of the earliest in Carlisle, was built by Robert Dykes and used as both a residence and a harness shop. Later, it was the residence of the judge.

Since that period, the house has had many, many owners and has generally been used as a residence with some commercial uses of the front of the building. The current owner purchased and renovated it in 1999 and uses it as an office and guest house. The house is of post and beam construction, and the insulation was provided by unfired bricks which were placed, and still remain, between the inner and outer walls of the house.
