Jamerson House

-A A +A
1915. 1020 Franklin St.

The Jamerson house is a larger than normal, midwestern version of the stucco, brick, and wood-trim Craftsman bungalow. The horizontal band of the front windows is compositionally contained between the projecting flower box below and an unusual horizontal flat roof above which joins the eave ends of the front gable. The house's gable roof is dramatically extended out and supported by projecting beams. A quality reminiscent of Japanese architecture is apparent in the way the eaves are drawn beyond the rafters of the dormer roof.
