Notice of Designation of Historic Structure

Intersecting hip roofs; broad roof overhang; compressed upper story with short windows; side entrance with vertical piers; corner pier; two story front porch, window band. House constructed to replace house on site demolished in fire in February 1914. 2015- "This two-story brick Prairie Style residence was designed to fit a narrow lot with the main entrance placed to the rear on the north side. The Roman brick facade is highlighted by a compressed stucco second story with bands of double hung windows. The intersecting low pitch hip roofs with exaggerated overhanging eaves are typical of the Prairie style. The contrasting vertical and horizontal planes seen in the broad flat chimney, brick piers and recessed bays display an angular, geometric appearance that is the hallmark of the Prairie School. This residence was built for Dr. Kinnear to replace a home on this site that was destroyed by fire."
