Appearance
The gambrel roof and the shingle siding at the upper story give the structure a slight Shingle style flavor. The half glazed entry door is a typical Queen Anne features. A few of the window are ganged in a manner typical of Craftsman style structures, and the house appears to be built on a bungalow plan. Some of the porch details are also suggestive of Craftsman work.

This house was built in 1906.

The back end of the structure appears to have been remodeled. Most of the windows appear to have been replaced, and although the new windows have generally been placed in the original window openings, the original muntin patterns in the distinctively Queen Anne windows have not been replicated.

The houses at 613, 615,and 619 32nd Avenue appear to have similar plans and utilize similar detailing.
