Architectural Style: Vernacular Turn of the Century Folk
Typical of folk houses of the late Victorian period, this house has an L-shaped plan and square, symmetrical massing. Standing stories high, this house is of frame construction and clad in white painted wood clapboard. Its cross gable roof is clad in asphalt shingle. The house’s decorative elements suggest a transition from the Italianate style, such as its light blue painted window mouldings and wide lintels, and light blue and white painted fascia trim. The wrap around porch has been enclosed and likely extended on the north façade. The pediment gable in the porch’s roofline still highlights the location of the front entrance. The windows are one-over-one replacements, except for two-over-two fixed original windows in the gable ends. The exterior brick chimney is located on the north façade.
