NOTES
Additional Information:This was the home of Henry King, who was president of the Jaeger Millwork Company, between c. 1913 and c. 1936.

This house has some historical interest as the home of businessman Henry King. Initial research indicates that his career is not significant, therefore, this house does not meet the criteria for local historical significance. In the proposed historic district for this area, however, this house would be considered contributing to the overall historical significance of the district under criterion B, association with significant persons as a group.

This building does not meet the criteria of the NRHP for architectural significance because of a lack of integrity. However, this building ha sufficient architectural character to contribute to the proposed historic district.
