-A A +A

This bungalow is the residence of the station manager. The one-and-a-half-story house, wood-framed with beveled siding, has a gable roof with gable dormer. Entrance is through a corner porch recessed under the main roof, near the projecting bay window under the dormer. The 34-foot-by-42-foot house was painted a light tan with darker trim, while the interior woodwork was stained.
