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

This is a vernacular structure (pyramidal family, national folk housing) utilizing a bungalow plan, originally with limited Queen Anne detailing, though the original siding, some Queen Anne style sash, and much of the original trim work is no longer in evidence. A Tuscan column at the corner of the porch gives tis small house a slight Free Classic feel.

This house was built in 1906 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

A window that once opened onto the porch has been removed. The sashes of several of the other windows appear to have been replaced. Window casings have likely been removed. The original siding was replaced or covered with concrete/asbestos shakes by 1957. This material has since been replaced or covered with aluminum cladding configured to resemble clapboard siding. Most of the original detailing has been lost or is no longer visible. The entry steps and stair railings have been replaced.
