1923. 445 N. 7th St.

The Martin House is a two-story Craftsman dwelling with walls finished in Kelistone, a trade name for a mix of crushed quartz and fine pea gravel coated with stucco. The low gable roofs have wide eaves with prominent brackets. Heavy windowsills, caps, and lintels enforce the horizontal lines. The interior makes extensive use of golden oak in floors, stairs, and built-in furnishings.
