Based on field work conducted in September 2014, this historic property retains its relationship to the streetscape, historic building form and a sufficient amount of exterior historic building fabric (design features, cladding and/or window sash/openings) to contribute to the distinct character of the Georgetown neighborhood.

This is an altered but relatively intact historic property that may possess some limited architectural and/or historic significance. Due to its construction date (age), design character and/or condition limited historical research has been undertaken regarding this property.This property exhibits some  substantive changes to the exterior appearance since it was identified in the 1997 HRI project: it has been renovated with cladding replacement and installation of some modern vinyl window units in opriginal openings.

Craftsman style bungalow with brick pattern asphalt cladding, gable roof, composition roofing, and a poured concrete foundation. It is in deteriorated condition. Building has typical bungalow roof details such as low-pitched roof, wide overhanging eaves, and knee braces. Windows are 6 over 1 double-hung sash. The central entry porch is enclosed. There is a concrete ramp from the street. There is a full basement under the house. This area may have had a grade change due to the river dike.
