  • Cobb House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

An enclosed porch projects to the street and the entrance is to the side in this one-and-a-half-story Prairie house. The ends of the gable roof project in a “Japanese” fashion; a sloped header window is situated in the gable, and wall dormers gently lift upward to provide windows for the second level.
