One Hundred and Counting

These four houses are at least one hundred years old.

A 1901 house on Circle Park Boulevard. The wood-shingle siding is a recent alteration. Note the dormers aligned at a ninety-degree angle.

The 1906 house of Handley civic leader William Weiler on Handley Drive. Note the octagonal, diamond, and square shingles on the pediment.

Cattleman Winfield Scott lived in this house (1909) on 8th Avenue while Thistle Hill (1904) was being remodeled just a short walk away. He died before he could move in.

The baby of this bunch is the Wofford house on Conner Avenue, built in 1910. Note the oversized dormer window with octagonal shingles.
