c. 1887. 2102 7th St.

The format of this two-story house with a corner bay tower is Queen Anne, though the delicate spindle and sawed work of its porches and gable ends is more related to the Eastlake tradition. The corner bay starts out on the first floor as a rectangular bay with a large plate-glass window; then on the second floor it becomes a “real” hexagonal tower proceeding upward to a tall, pointed roof.
