Early 20th century

This tall, orange brick American Foursquare house has corner pilasters with Ionic capitals. The one-story front porch bulges welcomingly outward in the center and visually supports a pair of more fully rounded bays on the second floor. The windows and front doorway have a plenitude of beveled glass.
