Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1252-T
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-105).
Significance: Albert A. Hamel, a traveling salesman for the Eagle Candy Company, built this large frame bungalow in 1921. It remained in family hands for almost thirty years after. The house displays a single sweeping gable with exposed rafter tips and projecting triangular brackets, full-width open front porch, second story rear sleeping porch and a picturesque array of window and door openings - features which place the house within mainstream bungalow styling prevalent at the time. Its recent conversion into apartments has compromised the integrity of the interior, but the exterior remains in virtually original condition - a representative example of the classic bungalow configuration.
