W. A. Hart House – c. 1919

This one-story, pyramidal-roofed house is four-bays wide and double pile with a gabled bay projecting from the left elevation and a shed-roofed addition across the rear. A front gable rises above the front entrance. A hip-roofed porch extends across the façade and wraps around the left side, terminating in the projecting bay. The metal porch roof is supported by tapered wood posts. The house retains original wood weatherboards and six-over-one wood windows throughout. The front door is a one-pane-over-three-panel door with matching sidelights. An additional one-pane over three-panel door has been added to the right side of the façade, when the house was converted to a duplex. A multi-light, diamond-shaped window remains to the left of the front door. The earliest known occupant is W. A. Hart (agent, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company of New York) in 1919.

Shed, c. 1925 – One-story, side-gabled, frame shed features wood weatherboards and a standing-seam metal roof with exposed eaves.
