The Johnson Residence

This house was constructed sometime between 1909 and 1913, the house has retained a its architectural integrity. It is a virtually intact example of a simple residential propoerty type -- the gable-front house. From at least 1917 through 1922, C. L. Johnson was the owner/occupant. The 1926 and 1942 Sanborn maps indicate that the house was used for rooming as well.
