c. 1910. 359 N. Marion St.

A turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival bungalow of strong character, this house has a deep porch with Tuscan columns and a balustrade running across the entire front. Within the porch, the entrance doorway is emphasized by two overscaled oval windows, one on each side. At the center of the low pitched roof is a dormer with a hooped center portion, accompanied on each side by lower shed-roofed sections.
