Dry goods and a penny arcade financed the George E. Boyden House. From the center of the flank roof projects a cross gable, to which small Queen Anne porches cling. Into one L-shaped corner is fitted a double sled-roofed entrance porch; into the other, a conical, semi-octagonal sitting porch, with a bedroom balcony porch above and behind. Yet another shedroofed variant off one side provides entrance to what is apparently a small adjunct apartment.
