c. 1925, Joseph A. Shannon. 801–805 5th St. NE
  • (Photograph by Steve C. Martens)

Shannon designed this pair of brick houses based on his familiarity with Prairie Style design. The lots on which the houses are situated are raised above the street and adjacent sidewalks. The houses are organized on a basic bungalow plan, but the low-pitched hipped roofs and front-facing gables are embellished with wooden trim and ornamental brackets. The entrance porticoes project from the main body of the house in two stages and are carried on piers at the front.
