House. Ca. 1940

Located on a corner of Cherry and Fifteenth, this two-story Georgian of masonry construction with stretcher-bond brickwork. The house paneled shutters throughout, is covered by a hipped roof with slate-look asbestos shingles, and incorporates two exterior end brick chimneys. The principal entry has a single-leaf paneled wood door set into a swan's-neck pedimented surround. The exterior includes other classical detailing such as an elaborate molded cornice with modillions and jack arches with keystones over the first-story windows. An original hipped-roof brick-faced garage facing onto Fifteenth Street is attached to the house by a short gabled hyphen/breezeway.
