Remarks: This house is attributed to Henry C. Trost on the basis of style, and because it is in an area where Trost built many homes of this character. The interior is spacious with wide halls. The living room is beamed; there are glass front bookcases on either side of the brick fireplace. There is cased pass-through to the dining room. The dining room wainscot is half-timber with plaster fill, topped by a plate rail. The ceiling is cross-beamed and there is a window seat. The second floor has four bedrooms and a bath, and has been somewhat modernized.
