House

-A A +A
c. 1900. 1316 2nd Ave. N.

This strong Colonial Revival design has just a touch of the picturesque quality found in the Queen Anne. The central gable of this two-and-a-half-story house contains an overscaled Palladian window; to each side of the gable are large-scaled dormers with gable roofs. The open front porch has now been enclosed and the walls have been painted a strong teal blue with contrasting cream trim.
