This is typical example of the American Four Square type house, a simple cubic shape wood frame structure with a hipped roof. In this a case a front dormer as adds both light to the attic level and accent to the facade.  The house is built on a concrete block foundation, clearly visible on the north side.  Originally this house would have had an open porch with ground floor windows visible, making the entire house more inviting.  The front door is also a replacement. The house has recently been painted a bright blue.  While not a color that would have been fond early in the 20th century, it certainly enlivens the street.

The rear garage mimics the style of the house.
