This house was built in 1906.

There appears to be a very early addition at the rear of the building. The windows appear to be relatively new at the early addition. Some of the windows at the front elevation may have been replaced. Aluminum storm windows have bee added at some openings. The siding may have been refurbished but retains its original appearance.
