Kranich House

-A A +A
1944–1945; 1947, porch. 111 West Pioneer Ave.

Almost a bungalow in appearance, the Kranich house has a gable roof with dramatic shed-roofed dormers. The wood-framed building, covered with cement asbestos shingles, was designed by Arleen Kranich and constructed in 1944–1945 for her and her husband, Bob. The enclosed hip-roofed porch across the front was added in 1947.
