c. 1882. 703 W. Monroe St.

The design of this splendid, playful dwelling merges the late Eastlake into the Queen Anne. Two delicate, spindly porches greet the visitor. The porch on the left has a horseshoe arch; that on the right presents a small circular pavilion with its own spired roof. Small dormers and porches with shed roofs occur on the second floor, and the gabled roof ends exhibit wide, elaborate bargeboards.
