”240 Walnut Avenue, Queen Anne, Ca. 1885
Together with 244 Walnut, this house forms a pair of Queen Anne cottages with towers over the entrances and other elaborate details on a simple L-plan. This house has an angled bay window and a shingled gable, with scroll work hanging from the window lintel and in the top of the gable. The porch has a curved wall with smooth diagonal siding, columns, and a spindled screen. The basement is sheathed in rusticated wood.
