Midtown Neighborhood Historic District

This the Henry Ehlmann House, probably built in 1873. Situated very close to the street, this 1½-story brick Federal style house has a side-gabled roof trimmed with an entablature having a cornice with corbelled brick dentils and an architrave with a dogtooth course. The roof's front slope holds a wide shed dormer with a band of three 6/1 clad windows and side walls finished with fish scale shingles.

When the house was originally built, it had two rooms on the main floor with a large attic on the upper level. A summer kitchen and a smoke house were located at the rear of the home. The dormers were added in 1903. The windows have stone lug sills and are framed by louvered blinds. The door opens onto a stoop and a stairway extends from the west side, hugging the front wall of the house, which was built shortly after the lot was purchased in 1873 by Henry Ehlmann.

The house may have been built by Christian Bode, who was a carpenter (and lived next door); however, since Ehlmann owned Henry Ehlmann & Son, brick contractors, he likely was responsible for the brickwork.
