Mullins House

-A A +A
c. 1900. 5359 Park Pl.

Built for one of the company's mining superintendents, this two-story, frame and weatherboard, hipped-roof house is set on a stone foundation, and has a one-story porch on piers that extends around three sides of the dwelling. The house's size, fashionable Queen Anne styling, and prominent setting overlooking the town reflect the importance of the mining superintendent within the hierarchy of company employees.
