This 2 ½ story Queen Anne style house is typical of builder and designer Theron Healy’s houses of 1890 and 1892.

Distinguished by a tall intersecting gabled roof, the house has a front porch with thin turned columns and lattice work brackets forming a round arched motif.

There is a circular bay window in the northwestern corner of the house that is part of the porch wall.

Note the elaborately carved double leaf doors that lead from the porch into the front entry.

On the front of the house there is a second story balcony with elaborate spindlework. There are stained glass transoms above the windows on the projecting bay on the front of the house. Some of the porch and balcony millwork was replaced during recent restoration.

The building permit lists Healy as the original owner and the estimated construction cost as $5000.
