605 JQ Adams Street

The 1-1/2 story vernacular duplex has a gable roof covered in composition shingles. It has a complex plan and a concrete foundation with a vertical plywood siding skirt. The house is clad in channel drop siding and features a wide rake board and frieze, as well as corner boards. The windows have been replaced with 1/1 vinyl windows with snap grids. They have simple wood trim moldings. The front porch on the main unit is not compatible with the structure and is an addition. It features turned columns, engaged columns, and fancy brackets. Its shed roof runs the length of the front elevation. The second living unit was attached post c. 1950. Additions and alterations have been made to the back of the house. Wing projections have been made to the north side that may be an attachment of a remnant structure. The house sits right at the sidewalk and does not feature any yard or landscaping.
