Significance: Built ca. 1892, the house is one of the original homes in the railroad suburb of Garrett Park. More modest than some of the other original houses, it is representative of the range of sizes and styles that made up the town in its earliest years. The Queen Anne/Shingle Style design is evident in the asymmetry of the roof line and such elements as the hooded gable dormer and "Queen Anne sash" at the front facade; the turret with "bell-cast" roof; and the decorative trim of the full-width front porch. These features have been well preserved. The original owner, Eppa R. Norris, served on the Town Council from 1901-1905, and the second owner, David Bissett (also spelled "Bisset"), served from 1906-1912, and from 1919-1921.
