Resource Description:
This one-and-one-half story house is an example of the Folk Victorian subtype. It has a cross-gabled roof and a projecting half-width front porch, which engages a projecting polygonal bay window, with a hipped roof supported by simple square wood columns. The house originally had a second porch to the south of the projecting bay, which wrapped to the south elevation, but it was enclosed sometime between 1903 and 1910. It has a hipped roof and is compatible with the detailing of the original house. The house has a composition shingle roof; walls clad in wood drop channel siding with corner boards; a concrete foundation; wood casement, double-hung, fixed and transom windows, some with square divided lights, in wood-framed openings; and a solid front door in a wood-framed opening. An exterior staircase was added to the north elevation at an unknown date and the front yard is enclosed by a newer ornamental steel fence. The rear building is not visible from the street and its use and date of construction are unknown.
