  This one-story, side-gabled Minimal Traditional house is three-bays wide and double pile with a shed-roofed addition on the left rear. The gabled front entry hood is supported by knee braces and shelters a replacement front door and a brick stoop. The house has asbestos siding and six-over-one replacement windows. Rectangular vents adorn the gable ends and an interior brick chimney punctures the asphalt-shingled roof. The earliest known residents are Joseph T. Whitehead (steamfitter) and his wife Grace in 1940. Also on the property is a one-story, front-gabled, frame shed (c. 1940) with an asphalt-shingled roof and molded wood weatherboards. It has a pair of hinged plywood doors on the façade.   (From the Burch Avenue National Register nomination, 2010.)


My mother, Betty Whitehead, grew up in this house. Joseph and Grace were my grandparents and died in the mid 60's. Thank you for posting this information.
