c. 1920. Main St. at Lonson Ave.

This large, handsomely detailed Craftsman-influenced house spreads horizontally into its site. Roof framing is exposed as brackets on each overhanging gable, and fascia trim and decoratively trimmed rafter tails at the eaves direct the eye downward. The sheltering roof projects beyond the walls to shade the windows, and a shed roof extends over the dining room bay. The three-over-one windows are grouped into well-proportioned sets, and narrow clapboard siding organizes the exterior above a heavy monolithic stucco foundation with small square windows in the podium. This stylish residence stands apart from its neighbors, bringing unexpected architectural sophistication to a small community.
