Historic Name: Unknown Common Name:
Style: Vernacular Neighborhood: Georgetown
Built By: Year Built:

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 project time constarints, its construction date (age), design character and/or condition no 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: a full width front porch has been added, new cladding, and window sash members appear to have been replaced. it is not know if this work may have been based on historic tax record photographs.

Residential vernacular building with asbestos cladding, gable roof, composition roofing, and a poured concrete foundaiton. Windows are tall, very narrow, single-hung sash. There is a diamond window at the gable end and a fan-type ornament under the gable. The central brick chimney may be new. Great plants and sculptures.
