Notes
Survey number HABS NV-31
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Significance: This building is an example of Reno bungalow architecture, which is representative of a type of housing stock common to Reno. Bungalow style architecture has been described as simple and modest, and this building is representative of one of the simplest forms of bungalow present in the Reno area. Although overall architecturally undistinguished in detail and form, it still embodies the distinctive characteristics of the bungalow style (one story, rectangular massed plan, offset door, offset gable porch, overhanging front-gable roof with rafter ends visible, exterior wood cladding, and one-over-one windows). This building, although in fair to deteriorated condition, still clearly reflects its historical location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, and feeling as a representative entity of a combined commercial and working class residential environment from the 1920s-30s in Reno. This type of residence is a scaled-down version of the popular bungalow style from the early twentieth century, and represents an example of 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.
