532 Elms Boulevard

This Craftsman bungalow exhibits many of the characteristic features of this early 20th-century style. The side-gable roof has wide, overhanging eaves with exposed beams. The full-length front porch has a flat roof with exposed rafter tails on all three sides. The porch supports are large, square stone columns, and the porch balustrade is stone as well. There is a front, gable roof dormer, also with exposed rafter tails. The first story of the house is clad with brick veneer, the attic story in stucco, and the walls of the dormer are narrow wood clapboards. A massive brick exterior chimney is on the south elevation, and has a diamond-shaped design near the cap. The south elevation also has wood steps leading to an entry on the attic level. The north elevation has a one-story projecting bay with hip roof. The windows are eight-over-one or six-over-one, and have stone sills on the ground level.

The Dr. H. J. Clark Residence

Constructed sometime between 1922 and 1926, the house has retained a high degree of architectural integrity (there is no listing for this address in a 1922 city directory), but the house appears in a 1926 Sanborn map). It is a virtually intact example of a Craftsman bungalow. In 1940, Dr. H. J. Clark resided here.
