Smith House

-A A +A
1899. 588 W. 1st St. (northeast corner of Elberta Ave.)

Queen Anne elements sparkle on this three-story dwelling, wrapped by a porch with grouped Ionic columns. The porch lines, pedimented entry, and ornamental brackets are repeated in the third-story overhanging gables and dormers. A wooden sunburst and a Palladian window bask in the facade gable end. Other fine homes on the street include John A. Port's two-story frame house (1905), at 398 West 1st Street, the first dwelling in Palisade to have indoor plumbing.
