Historic Detail Reference

Why save it? The exterior has extensive, fanciful Queen Anne embellishments, including the original turreted porch and detailed spindlework. Metal siding conceals original wood clapboards, as well as decorative bands of scalloped shingles. Inside, a curved staircase crafted from oak and walnut leads 
to the top of the tower.

Shown: This period photo provides a road map for replacing the gable trusses. It also shows the bands of scalloped shingles.
