Name That Architectural Style!

Hi, we just bought our first home. I'm hoping someone could take a quick look at it and tell me what type/style it is.. It's located in Springfield Ohio. I know (or rather was told by the Realtor) that it was built in 1914.
Thanks in advance for any ideas anyone can offer!

I am no expert... but it looks like craftsmen style to me.

Nice house!

Ah ha! Thanks so much, now I won't look like such a moron when people ask me :)
Ya know, the differences between styles are, in some cases, and just from the little research I've done, so vague & small.. I could have never pinned it down to any one style.. Thanks again!!

I use to own the same type of house and was sold as an Craftsmen Bungalo. They're beautiful homes.

Aren't they, though!? I am so in love with it! SOOO much work to be done in order to restore it but I am excited instead of daunted by the prospect. :)
