Stubbins House

1886, John Victoria. 248 1st Ave.
  • Stubbins House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The Stubbins house expresses the Eastlake mode with a few touches of the Queen Anne. Its sawed-work entrance porch is one of the finest examples of the Eastlake style within the state. The corner oriel window on the right of the entrance balances the angled bay on the other side of the entrance porch.
