Architectural Style: Neoclassic Row House

Original Use: Residential

Brief description of the site or the structure and any major alternations from its original condition: Interspersed among the bungalows in the west half of the Wisecarver addition is a significant number of neoclassic row houses. They are all one-story, single family residences. Unless otherwise noted, all of the houses in this group have raised foundations and a recessed corner porch. They are commonly sheathed with narrow clapboard siding and capped by a medium pitched hip roof. The roof generally has a front hip dormer containing a small window or attic vent. Typically, the eaves are enclosed in a simple boxed cornice. Except as noted all have double hung sash windows and single leaf main entrances. This hipped roof of this neoclassic row house is intersected by a projecting gabled bay at the front corner. The gable peak is covered with fish scale shingles and contains a small tripart attic window with a round leaded center section. The recessed corner porch has an arched opening. Decorative wood shutters frame the front facing windows.

Historical and/or architectural importance: The homes in this district are all in the western section of the Wisecarver Addition
