This is one of the finest masonry buildings in the district. It has a strong rectilinear profile with bracketed eaves and rock faced limestone trim. Of special note are the large key stone treatment over the east window set. Also notice the west side gable with its ornate singled sides and the oriel window.

By the early 1890s, all of the dramatic sites facing the city had been taken, and builders turned their attention to open lots in the vicinity of the mansions to build their upscale projects. Eichenwald Row was the most elaborate serial housing venture in the bluff area. Created by local masterbuilder Andrew Hoban, it captured nearly every phase of the Queen Anne style, from the English Tudor of the gable facings, to the Early American of the porch columns, to the Richardsonian Romanesque of the broad- arched stone and brickwork.

Eichenwald Row remains on Eichenwald street within view. These two buildings are a testimate to his love and great talent with brick and stone structures.
