Summary for 6915 ELLIS AVE / Parcel ID / Inv # 0

Historic Name: Frank W. Fisher House Common Name:
Style: Arts & Crafts - Craftsman Neighborhood: Georgetown
Built By: Year Built: 1919

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 appears to be a partly 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; however, it is very difficult to view/document.

Craftsman style bungalow with double course wood shingle cladding, hip roof, composition roofing, and a poured concrete foundation. Double-hung, 8 over 1 windows in pairs on the front elevation. The buidling has knee braces, wide overhanging eaves, exposed rafter ends, and cut-out pattern in bargeboards. It has a new porch and entry. House is difficult to view due to the laurel hedge.
