Italianate Victorian Residence 1901

This two-story building was one of a pair that were almost identical, both having hipped roofs, and similar floor plans and window articulation. The main distinguishing feature was the porch treatment. The house at 208 13th Avenue South has two porches, one on each floor. The main-level porch has gingerbreading, while the second-floor porch has columns and arch decorations. The house at 210 13th Avenue South (destroyed by fire) had a covered entry porch with an ornate column. These buildings were originally single-family houses, but were subdivided into apartments. The residence at 208 13th Avenue South was later moved to 1414 South Washington Street for the construction of the Bailey Gatzert Elementary School.
