Salt Box House: Salt-Box House A salt-box house is a type of frame house which is distinguished by having two stories in the front, one story in the back and a huge chimney in the middle. The second floor used to overhang the first floor and the windows were very small. The entrance is situated exactly in the middle of the house. architectural style emerged in New England around 1630, and salt-box homes were built well through the mid-1800s.

The salt-box style gave a one story front and ample space for additional rooms under the roof behind.
