NOTES
Additional Information:One of the Ernest Flagg Stone Masonry Houses of Milwaukee County.

This one and one half-story Flagg System home faces north and has asymmetrical window and door openings. The exterior walls are limestone. There is a wood shake shingle gable roof. There is a square two-story tower on the northeast corner of the house with a hip roof. There are four chimneys, three of which have distinctive round openings and two of which are false. There is one pair of ridge dormers and one gable dormer. The original builder shared a driveway to the west with the occupant of that house. The Wichts, the owners from 1970- May 2013, built a driveway on the east and a garage which is not significant part of this nomination. The living room originally had a limestone fireplace, but the present owners covered it with marble. They also replaced the tile sills on the inward opening casement windows with marble. The second floor was unfinished in 1970 when the house was purchased by the present owner. He finished the upstairs in 1974 to include bedrooms and bath. There is a storage space under the roof and Flagg hinges on casement windows upstairs.

The house is architecturally significant because it is one of a group of homes built of stone masonry by Arnold F. Meyer & Company, Inc. according to construction methods of Ernest Flagg.

One of seven homes on the 2013 Wauwatosa Historical Society's Annual Tour of Homes.
