NOTES
Additional Information:Decked screened south porch and garage; decked projecting one story entrance with arched frontis piece with applied pilasters; six over six windows.

This house was occupied by several families during the date of construction. Initial research indicates that none of the occupants of this house are historically significant either individually, or as a group within the proposed historic district.

This vernacular brick house is significant under criterion C as an example of the vernacular interpretation of the early 20th Colnial Revival style. Constructed of reused brick, this symmetrical gable roofed house is one of the very few houses influenced by the American Colonial Revival.
