1901 - The house is believed to have been built at this time. This is a Victorian Folk house with a front-gabled roof and "gable-like" dormer. It is an example of a post-railroad house form. Queen Ann detailing is expressed on the porch with the open-work freize suspended from the porch roof, supported by turned posts with cut-work freize suspended from the porch roof, supported by turned posts with cut-work corner trim and simple rails and balustrades. The Victorian decorative trim on simple folk forms were generally less elaborate than the style they tried to mimic but in reality the result is more pleasing visually.
