One of the Ernest Flagg Stone Masonry Houses of Milwaukee County. Milwaukee County Landmark: 1979.

This one and one half-story Flagg System house is U-shaped and has original garage attached. The front entrance faces west. The exterior walls are limestone and the roof has asphalt shingles, replacing the original tile-colored asbestos shingles. There are four pairs of ridge dormers, three gable dormers and four chimneys with distinctive round openings, although two are purely decorative. The first floor has a beam and girder ceiling and there is a stone fireplace in the living room. Casement windows open inward over tile sills. There is a partial basement and laundry room on the first floor. On the second floor the bathroom is one step above the level of the hallway. The ridge dormers are placed above the walk-in closets to give light and ventilation. The upstairs partitions are 1 3/4" thick. Casement windows upstairs have unusual Flagg type hinges. The present owner added shutters to the house.

This house is architecturally significant because it is one of a group of stone masonry houses built by Anold F. Meyer & Company, Inc. according to construction methods of Ernest Flagg. It is also significant because it is one of a row of three Flag System houses designated as Milwaukee County Landmarks. There are five Flagg System houses in the neighborhood.
