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

This one-story, side-gabled Ranch house is four bays wide and double-pile with the left (east) bay recessed slightly under a lower roofline. The house has vinyl siding and windows, including a picture window flanked by double-hung windows to the left of the entrance and double-hung windows that wrap around the right (west) end of the fac╠žade. The four-light-over-four-panel door is accessed by an uncovered brick stoop with decorative metal railing. There is a garage at the basement level of the left bay and an enclosed inset porch at the rear of the left bay. A modern unpainted wood deck is at the rear. County tax records date the building to 1956.

What, and the addition of fake, egregiously undersized/impossible shutters doesn't render this building non-contributing? SHPO, your standards are slippping...

I think I'm going to start calling the 'Historic District' the "Ranch District." The more I catalog houses in 'the district' the more I realize the relative proportions of 1950s-1960s housing to ye olde antebellum housing.
