In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
This house appears on the 1904-1905 Sanborn and is included because it contributes to the historic streetscape. J. S. Marsland purchased this property in 1930.
This vernacular dwelling, with its disproportionate gable on hip roof is a local interpretation of the Queen Anne style. Stripped of most detail, its form, including a gable roof projection and side entrance, characterize the cottage. Old fruit trees and other plantings remind us that South Park was an agrarian community and lend to the historic streetscape.
