Johnson Hotel

-A A +A
1917. Kennicott Ave.

This two-story, false-fronted building was built for Mrs. Peter “Ma” Johnson. The hip-roofed porch with turned balusters has been added recently, in an attempt to identify it as a hotel; the original flat-fronted appearance was not so inviting. Paired one-over-one-light windows flank the central door; a secondary door on the front has been removed. The bedrooms were small, originally measuring 6 feet by 9 feet. A large two-story section has been added to the rear of the building.
