Long Description:
"1001 East Walnut Street; built circa 1905 by Benjamin Routt of Routt Brothers, grocers, in the catalogue-builder-foursquare style. Two story frame house with a bell cast hip roof with the unusual feature of a finial at the apex of the hip faces. The roof eaves project noticeably with simple board modillions. There is a group of four large consoles framing multi-light sash windows centered at the second story level above the entrance. The porch wraps around the east elevation in addition to filling the facade. The house retains its original character."

The house is in good condition and continues to serve as a private residence.
