House (George W. Durgan House)

-A A +A
George W. Durgan House
1905. 408 Crook Ave.

This simple one-story house with restrained volumes and decorative elements survives as the best remaining example of vernacular residential stone architecture in Goldfield. Though modest, the building has a mixture of well-executed details, especially the light-colored quoins, which contrast with the darker walls of the house; bell-shaped eaves; and enclosed soffits.
