Historic Name: Unknown Common Name:
Style: American Foursquare Neighborhood: Central Area

This house is a good example of the American Foursquare elaborated with neoclassical details.
This ambitious two & 1/2 story "foursquare" is in need of maintenance and repair but retains its elegant neoclassical detail. A pedimented entrance supported by classical columns characterizes the façade. Both round and square columns visually support an architrave that delineates the first floor. The hipped roof and hipped roof dormer have slightly flared eaves.
