Remarks: This house was original built for Jonathan Dodge a lawyer in 1903. He sold it to James Brady a dentist in 1904. The Dodge family decided to move to California.
The house combines Italianate and Queen Anne features (both somewhat old fashioned for this time) with elements of domestic Mexican architecture. Though eclectic, it is still an engaging building. It is now obscured by a tall stand of trees.
