DESCRIPTION

Setting

The property is located on the north side of Birch Avenue east of the intersection with Witherspoon Street. Birch Avenue is a residential street with a tree-lined sidewalk on each side. The property has a small front lawn off the sidewalk.

Description

The house is a 1-story noncontributing residence. The end-gabled roof is clad with asphalt shingles and features a large cross-gable over the eastern half of the main (south) slope. The frame walls are clad with vinyl. Windows are modern units. A gabled hood near the center of the elevation shades the new door.

History

Historic maps and Sanborn Atlases indicate that this particular property was vacant as late as 1918. The first historic map or aerial showing the house in this location is the historic aerial of 1940. It is unclear if any portion of the house dating to c. 1930 is incorporated into the current building. The current building was either constructed or rehabilitated in the late 20th century. Note: the 1930 atlas does not cover houses along Birch Avenue.
