511 8th Street

This 1-1/2 story house sits under a front gable roof, with a full width hipped porch on the south side of the house. The porch hip is supported by tapered square columns, arranged in pairs, set on a solid balustrade. A second floor balcony is cut into the porch hip at the center of the façade. The main gable and the porch hip feature open eaves, and the gable has wide barge boards with decorative knee brackets. Two shed dormers project out from the east side of the gable with the same decorative elements as the main gable. The house is entirely clad with narrow beveled lap siding, with the exception of the parged foundation. The house also features a small porch on the north side with the same elements as the front porch. The windows are a mixture of casement and double-hung windows, all with divided lights. The windows typically feature plain board trim on three sides and narrow sills.
