This house, a variant of the American Foursquare type with L-shaped roof, was built ca. 1900. It has been thoroughly remodeled with windows, siding and porch replaced, but the vestige of a pointed Gothic-style window in its gable suggests that it was more decorative. Perhaps beneath its new siding old patterned shingles survive as at #717
