 21. Residential Home

201 W. Washington Ave. (c. 1860)

Changed little since its construction in 1860, this workingman's style home, with two stories in front and a one-story rear addition, gave the impression of a larger structure.

The design is transitional; the symmetrical facade shows Colonial influence, and the porch, which may have been added later, has Victorian decorations.  Century-old plantings still bloom in the yard.

The wood shed is believed to have been constructed out of materials from a barn which originally stood along the north alley.

It is typical of 19th century out-buildings.  The windows are from the 1840's.
