In its irregular massing, wood-shingled gables, and wide wraparound porch this large brick house is typical of Queen Anne. But the coupled columns of the porch, the Palladian attic windows, and dentil cornices are indicative of a growing interest in Colonial Revival. The house (1890) at 213 Solar is more typical of Queen Anne with its many projecting bays, a tower capped by a pagoda-like roof, and a wraparound porch with slender wooden columns. A cast-iron gate and gateposts are all that remain of a cast-iron fence.
