Brief Description
1 1/2-story Bungalow, rectangular in shape with an asphalt-shingled roof with exposed rafter ends. The house is weatherboard -sided. A hipped dormer with exposed rafter ends includes three 1/1 double-hung sash windows and is centered on the front roof slope. Primary windows are 2(vertical)/2(vertical) double-hung wood sash. The foundation is brick pier with infill brick. A plain wood water table surrounds the house above the foundation. The facade (west) is three bays (2W, D, 2W) with a centered, single-leaf paneled entry door with two-light transom. Inset under the principal roof is a partial-width entry porch with plain wood freize, square posts, and a turned wood balustrade. A partial-width porch is located at the northeast corner of the rear.
Historic Information
According to the 1925 and 1938 Sanborn maps, this house was identified with an address of 306. The maps also suggest that it was historically L-front with a rear T-wing. It has since been enclosed in the rear to create its current rectangular shape. The NR nomination inaccurately states that the southwest corner of the facade is an enclosed portion of a front porch. However, the historic sanborn maps suggest that this portion was always enclosed.
