Inscription.  

This Victorian Gothic structure with its onion-domed turret was named "Algrunix" for its three owners: Edward Allen, building contractor; Samuel Grumbine, self-trained attorney; and Hattie Nixon, wife of another building contractor. Moorish type architecture was popular in Pennsylvania beginning in the 1860s. In 1997, owner J. J. Steinbuhler received a commonwealth preservation award for his building restoration.
