08.08.2016 (G. Kueber)

(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

This one-story, side-gabled frame house is three bays wide and single-pile with a shed-roofed ell at the left rear (southwest). The building has a concrete-block foundation, German-profile weatherboards, and six- over-six wood-sash windows with eight-over-eight windows on the rear ell. The six-light-over-two-panel, Craftsman-style door is sheltered by a near-full-width, shed-roofed porch supported by square posts. Portions of a low stone wall remain at the street with a stone stair to the house. The house is typical of early twentieth- century worker housing in the Hillsborough and it appears on the 1924 Sanborn map.

This house is slated to be removed as of 2016 (along with two adjacent properties) and replaced with a modern multifamily development and copious parking. I hope at least they move it to a new lot rather than tearing it down.
