King County Property Record Card (c. 1938-1972) Washington State Archives

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with Queen Anne architecture; however, the form of the house appears to be based on a vernacular version of bungalow typology.

This house was built in 1900 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report. According to the King County Property Record Card, the house was remodeled prior to 1937; however, the extent of the work undertaken and the date of the work is not indicated.

The original half-light entry door has been replaced with a newer door of similar design. The original drop siding was replaced or covered with concrete/asbestos shakes in the 1950s.
The original wood porch railing has more recently been replaced with a lighter wood railing.
