717 59th Avenue
—Historic Resource, Built circa 1910 —The Trammell-Taylor House was one of the most substantial houses in the early development of Fairmount Heights. The house is a two-and-one-half story, side gabled, wood frame dwelling with Classical Revival decorative details. Above the entry porch is a narrow nine-pane diamond shape window. A single-pane octagonal window lights the loft level in each gable end. The Trammell-Taylor house was built for John and Martha Trammell, who purchased two unimproved lots from developer, Robinson White (developer of Bungalow Row now 62nd Avenue) in 1907. John Trammell worked as a waiter when he first settled in Fairmount Heights. The Trammells remained in their family house until 1937. In 1961, the house became the law office and home of Circuit Court Judge James H.
