Significance
In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
This is a very good example of an American Foursquare, notable for its leaded glass windows (with an elegant floral motif), curved bay and columned porch. Capitol Hill has the city’s greatest concentration of American Foursquares--often called the Classic Box or Seattle Box, because of its local popularity. They were built primarily between 1905 and 1910. There are typically eight main rooms on two floors--living room, hall, dining room and kitchen downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs. Two reasons for the popularity of the form were that it provided a large amount of space for reasonable cost, and that it could easily be personalized for varying tastes and budgets.
