c. 1920. Southwest corner of 1st St. W. and 2nd Ave. S.

This building is distinguished by four-story Ionic columns (all delightfully wrong in their proportions) set on high stone bases; above, a gentle roof is covered with tile. The image is that of a classicized bungalow. The present front porch has the look of having been devised as a drive-through for a gasoline service station.
