Additional Information

General Description

"This was a wood frame, one-story structure (48' x 28') with a gable roof covered in composition shingles and a concrete foundation with a partial basement. Recent work includes the addition of a shed roofed wall dormer with a gabled end. It is sided with horizontal wood lap siding. Architectural elements include exposed rafter tails, original double-hung windows with wide trim and an enclosed gable entry way with a multi-paned door. Despite the dormer addition, the structure retains its architectural integrity. It is a contributing element to the architectural and historic unity of the neighborhood and a contributing structure in the Chicken Ridge Historic District. "

Historical Information

The Cole family was the first residents and occupied the house until the 1920s. Clarence Cash Cole served as Territorial Treasurer and operated a transfer company.
