West elevation: four 6/6 windows with metal awnings (including the windows of the rear ell). East elevation: two single 6/6 windows and one double 6/6 window. OUTBUILDINGS: Frame garage.
major changes - siding, awnings are not original; comparison of a recent aerial photo to the Sanborn maps shows that an ell has been added to the west end of the rear elevation.
In 1922 and 1931, this building was a dwelling according to the Sanborn maps of Denmark. The house is in an area not covered by the 1908 and 1913 Sanborns.
