c. 1878. 713 Robinson St.

Three gables of this richly detailed wooden Eastlake-style dwelling look out upon the street. The stepped roof of the main gables and the three gables to the front have cutout patterned bargeboards. Do not miss the V-shaped bay window at the right side of the house, with its raised and recessed panels, its decorated “skirt” flowing from its eaves, and the pair of tall finials. The present porch is the result of a Craftsman remodeling, c. 1910.
