c. 1860. 711 Adams St.

A solid Italianate house of low silhouette, this dwelling has masonry walls that are now painted white, but the U-shaped stone lintels above the windows have been left untouched. The entrance to this house is to the right; on the left side is a two-story angled bay. A masonry piered porch and enclosure have been added to the first-floor front of the house.
