This typical one-story, triple-A-roofed house is four-bays wide and single pile with a gabled rear ell.  A second entrance from the front porch indicates that the building may have been used as a duplex for some period, though city directories cannot confirm when this may have occurred. The earliest known residents are the Leigh family (Miss Birdie, J. Claudius, and Miss Nannie B.) in 1905.

This typical one-story, triple-A-roofed house is four-bays wide and single pile with a gabled rear ell and a shed-roofed rear addition beside the ell. The house rests on a brick foundation and retains original molded wood weatherboards, cornice returns, and moldings, including boxed eaves and arched vents in the gables. A shed-roofed front porch extends across the façade supported by turned porch posts with brackets. The front door, centered on the façade, is a one-light over three-panel door, though its ten-light sidelights have been boarded over. A second entrance from the front porch indicates that the building may have been used as a duplex for some period, though city directories cannot confirm when this may have occurred; this secondary entrance has been boarded over. The house retains some original two-over-two windows. The earliest known residents are the Leigh family (Miss Birdie, J. Claudius, and Miss Nannie B.) in 1905.

 

Garage, c. 1920 – A large frame garage stands just northeast of the house, but is barely visible through the foliage. The garage is a front-gabled structure with asphalt-shingled roof, molded wood weatherboards and a pair of two-over-two windows on the west elevation.
