Queen Anne Style
Stacks Image 589
This is a highly-detailed two-and-a-half-story frame residence with wood corner and rake boards, wide frieze, eaveline brackets, hipped roof, front-facing and pedimented cross-gable over two-story cutaway bay, central and rear wall red-brick masonry chimneys, and full-width one-story porch. There are cross gables over projecting two-story bays on the north and south (side) elevations and a two-story cross-gable wing on the west (rear) elevation. Fenestration throughout consists of one-over-one double-hung sash with frame surrounds. Those in the gable ends are paired. The front porch has turned balusters, Doric supports, and a shed roof with pedimented cross gable over the entry. There is an open second story turret above the northern end of the porch. The tympanum over the entry to the main portion of the porch has a decorative panel with spiral garland detailing. The building is sheathed in wood shingles, some of these being patterned.

This house is architecturally significant as a well-preserved example of a Queen Anne style residence. This house possesses many of the features that were typical of the highly decorative Queen Anne form, including projecting bays with eaveline brackets, an engaged corner turret, patterned shinglework, and highly detailed porch components. Built c. 1905, the house is visible on the 1908 Sanborn Map. By 1930, the residence was that of 40-year old Edna J. Morgan, a boarding house proprietor and widow of Harry G. Morgan. The 1920 census indicates that Harry Morgan was a dentist and operated his practice from home.
