  • J. J. McClung House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The self-taught architect Charles F. Church of Lamoni provided his client with a Colonial Revival image, one frequently utilized for an upper-middle-class dwelling. The two-story entrance porch has pairs of Corinthian columns at each corner. The tympanum of the pediment above contains a delicate lunette window. Within the porch there is a bracket-supported balcony over the sidelighted entrance. On each side of the central pediment on the roof there are pedimented dormers with diamond-paned windows.
