Significance: Overall, the technology, style, and decorative fixtures and moldings employed are consistent with early twentieth-century buildings. Many elements within the house from glass, mirrors, moldings, and doorknobs, to bricks, flooring, roofing, and structural members were mass produced and used widely in buildings contemporary to it. Such common decorative and structural elements were easily accessible due to its location in the suburb of a by then industrialized city with numerous railroad connections. The authenticity of the house and the care with which it has been kept and renovated renders No. 3111 Grove Avenue a significant piece in the history of turn-of-the-century suburban development in relationship to revitalization efforts of the late twentieth century in historic cities throughout the Southeast.
