Resource Description:
This two-story house is an example of the American Foursquare subtype. It has a low hipped roof—with flared ends—and a centered hipped roof dormer with a louvered vent. A two-story gabled bay projects from the south elevation and an attached staircase on the north side, likely installed in 1944 when the house was converted to apartments, is covered by a hipped-roof canopy. The recessed half-width front porch is supported by a single turned-wood column. The house has a composition shingle roof; walls clad in rectangular wood shingles on the second floor and narrow exposure wood lap siding with corner boards on the first floor; wood casement windows with square divided lights at the top in wood-framed and pedimented openings; and a front door, obscured by a metal security screen, in a wood-framed opening. The front yard is slightly elevated from street level by a concrete retaining wall, which is topped with a wood picket fence. A permit for the rear garage was not found; however, a note in the records indicates destruction of a garage by fire in 1972; therefore, it is likely that the existing garage was built following the fire.
