Inscription.  This three-story Georgian revival-style building with turrets incorporates a Queen Anne tower topped with a 'witches hat' roof. The owner-builder, Henry Ruckert, completed the structure in 1889 at a cost of $140,000. He placed his initials and the date in the keystone of the portal and originally operated the building as a 12-apartment complex. After years of decline and use as a boarding house, the building was restored in 2017.
