Summary for 711 S HOMER ST S / Parcel ID / Inv # 0

Historic Name: H. T. Knapp Duplex Common Name:
Style: Arts & Crafts - Craftsman, Colonial - Colonial Revival Neighborhood: Georgetown
Built By: Year Built: 1912/1945

Based on field work conducted in September 2014, this historic property retains its relationship to the streetscape, historic building form and a sufficient amount of exterior historic building fabric (design features, cladding and/or window sash/openings) to contribute to the distinct character of the Georgetown neighborhood.

This is an altered but relatively intact historic property that may possess some limited architectural and/or historic significance. Due to its construction date (age), design character and/or condition limited historical research has been undertaken regarding this property. This property exhibits no substantive changes to the exterior appearance since it was identified in the 1997 HRI project.

Converted/remodeled to duplex in 1945.

Windows altered - changed to vinyl. Knee braces boxed-in. Wide overhangs at the eves. Front gable/offset porch with square columns. Dormers at west and east elevations. Oiginal fireplace chimney. Bay window at east elevation.
