NOTES
Additional Information:Segmental arch entrance porch with Tuscan Order columns and engaged pilasters flanking the 12 light entrance door which has four light sidelights. Main window group facing front has a large flower box below supported by three heavy brackets. A concrete beltcourse divides the brick first floor from the stucco second floor and also acts as the second floor window sill. The grouped windows, wide overhanging eaves and the emphasized banded second story create the most elemental type of Prairie School inspired house.
