The Beach House #2:

 

Built ca. 1840, this house is one of several similarly shaped homes in Perrysburg commonly called “saltbox” houses, a Colonial style of architecture that originated in New England. The shape derives from the practice in Colonial America days of simply continuing the roof slope over added space on one side of the structure, thus giving it an early American saltbox shape. The front entrance here is topped with a small pediment framed by simple pilasters. 

It is not certain who built it, but it is generally attributed to Gilbert Beach, who also built the home at 342 West Second Street.
