Mills Residence circa 1890

Some houses do not fit neatly into one particular style. This example might very well be a transition between the Ital-ianate Victorian and the later Queen Anne style, or an Italianate remodeled at a later date. The major footprint of the building is square, which was common for Italianate structures. The small brackets under the eaves are also typical of the Italianate, not the Queen Anne style. The front porch treatment, with turned porch supports and delicate gingerbreading, is more indicative of a Queen Anne structure. The smaller second-floor portion of the bay window is unusual.

Italianate Victorian house originally located at 208 13th Avenue South, in 2004.
