  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

This one-story bungalow is typical of those built by businessmen in Tonopah during the town's first boom period. A hipped roof extends forward to enclose a front veranda supported by six shingled, tapered columns. The veranda curves around the building's southeast corner. The main entrance has multipane side lights and transom; a bay window with multilight sashes projects from the west side of the house next to a massive stone chimney.
