Here is a three story Victorian style house. It is indicative with its textured shingles that avoid a smooth-wall appearance. There is also an irregularly shaped roof above the front porch. Two chimney stacks stick up from the gabled roof. In 1917, this house cost between $2,800 and $3,000 to build depending on the locality.
