Long Description:
"938 East Walnut Street; built 1899-1900 by Henry Smalley, railroad tie contractor, in the Queen Anne style. Two story frame house with gable and hip roof combination and an asymmetrical plan shape. The second story of each of the side elevation wings overhangs the first story with closely grouped cornice brackets echoed in the gable pediment of each wing. The second story level of the house is covered with staggered butt shingles. The northwest corner of the house has a rectangular shaped turret with a hip roof rising from the second story. The turret has a round window opening. On the adjacent roof face is an unusual eyebrow window. A porch fills the angle of the facade wing and the side elevation wing to the west with a porch gable roof filled with cast plaster decoration. Originally there was a matching porch in the angle of the facade wing and the east elevation wing. The porch area has been completely built in. With the later exception, the house retains its original character." - Historic District Nomination

The house appears to be in very good condition and serves as a single family home and art studio.
