Additional commentary.
1. Historic Hitching Post
The hitching post in front of the house (covered by shrubbery) is listed on the Santa Cruz Historic Building Survey, Volume III, March 2013, under the section Hitching Posts.

"A variety of hitching posts, hitching rails, and mounting blocks were once common in Santa Cruz, but are now becoming quite rare. The survivors contribute to the historic character of the neighborhoods and are authentic vestiges of a pre-automobile Santa Cruz. Several surveys of hitching posts have been conducted since the late 1970s; increasingly, the posts identified in these surveys have continued to disappear. The only known mounting block in original condition and location is the concrete Reyonolds-Hug step located at 123 Green Street. These historic elements provide visual interest to the streetscape and help to give Santa Cruz its distinctive character."
