A description of the house can be found on page 20:
This is the southernmost of the pair of houses (402 and 406 South East Street) built for Thomas Alcocke ca. 1870-1880. The two houses appear to have been built as nearly identical and modestly detailed late nineteenth-century dwellings. This front-gabled house retains its weatherboard exterior, brackets, 6/6 sash windows, entrance door with transom and sidelights, and some of its original mantels and the interior stairway. The original 1-story rear wing has been raised to 2 stories, and there is a 1-story addition to the south. Miss Susie Thornton lived in this house for many years.(Submitted on September 21, 2023, by Devry Becker Jones of Washington, District of Columbia.)
