"The Gem of Dover" was originally built on the outskirts of Dover in the late 19th century. Now it is nestled on the edge of lovely downtown. Built by Civil War Union Quartermaster Andrew Young, the house was later owned by Dr. Hayes, a significant figure in Dover history. This Second Empire Victorian home features a grand library with a wood-burning fireplace, formal dining room, parlor with additional wood fireplace, up to 9 bedrooms possible on the second and third floors, six bathrooms possible, a maid’s quarters, butler's pantry, cedar closet, inlaid wood floors, carved crown molding, ornate brass-and-crystal chandeliers with medallions, a grand staircase, and more! The yard is bursting with greenery in the warmer months, and the porches are a perfect place to sit and enjoy the yard and the peaceful neighborhood. Work has been done to restored this majestic, beautiful, bright, and open home to once again become the "Gem of Dover."
