c. 1915. 622 N. Main St.

A good local interpretation of an Arts and Crafts bungalow, this house has a massive deck-on-hip slate roof punctuated on each side by a centrally placed hipped-roof dormer with a dramatic forward projection. Brick pillars, strongly defined by corbeled brick capitals, support the massive roof that seems to float over the deep front porch.
