Inscription.  The Craftsman style created such local fervor that in 1911 the Missoulian Publishing Company hosted a local contest offering a Craftsman bungalow style home as the grand prize. That home stands today just outside the University Area district. By the 1920s, bungalows predominated in the University neighborhoods. This fine example, constructed circa 1922, is said to have been partly built with bricks from Butte’s Finlen Hotel, a landmark that was razed and rebuilt at about this same time. Dr. Edward Ramaker, a local dentist, was an early owner living here with his wife Pearl and three daughters from the late 1920s to the early 1940s. The next long-term owner was Leo Kelly, land agent for the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. Weather bureau meteorologist Asahel Burnham and his wife Beulah bought the home in 1959. Craftsman style details include heavy wood columns resting on brick piers, a gabled open porch, and multi-paned windows. A dark brick fireplace with red tile hearth, coved ceilings, and nine-inch rounded baseboards continue the Craftsman style inside.
