c. 1920, attributed to Einar O. Broaten. 122 4th St. S.E. (US 65)

This Prairie school two-story box has a porch that projects toward the street. The porch is covered by a low-pitched gable roof. The brick walls of the house have been carried up to the sills of the second-floor windows, and there is stucco above. Leaded glass casement windows with a simple geometric pattern are present in both the house and the enclosed porch.
