Significance: This building is an example of Reno brick duplex bungalow architecture, and is representative of a type of housing stock common to Reno during the early part of the twentieth century. Bungalow style architecture has been described as simple and modest, and this building is representative of the simplest form of bungalow present in the Reno area. Although architecturally undistinguished in detail and form, it still embodies the distinctive characteristics of the bungalow style (one story, rectangular mass, offset doors, low pitched overhanging gable roof, brick exterior, one-over-one windows, and porches with square posts on piers). Additionally, the duplex form clearly reflects its historical location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association as a representative entity of a combined commercial and working class residential environment from the 1920s-30s in Reno. This type of residence represents the affordable housing alternative particularly popular for working-class neighborhoods at that time. Based on the above information, this residence was recommended to be eligible for the National Register under Criterion C.
