Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1252-G
Significance: This frame house, perhaps the oldest remaining domestic structure in the study area, displays elements from the Late Victorian period (turned balusters and newel, slanted bay, picturesque massing) with the pedimented window heads, returning cornices and symmetrical facade of the 2-story section that are hallmarks of the Greek Revival temple form. This mixing of the two styles - an old one with one that is even older - suggest an early construction date for an eclectic building or major additions and/or alterations to a very early structure for this neighborhood. More research is needed. Although the recent addition of asbestos siding is unfortunate, this house retains most of its architectural features and is one of the more important structures in the study area.
