Notes

The modified L-plan is a distinctive house form of the late 19th and early 20th centuries that is easily identified by its stepped back fa├žade and its use of a high-pitched hipped roof with gabled extensions. This one-story framed dwelling is a relatively unaltered illustration of this locally common vernacular house form, and its wraparound porch, angled corners on the front projecting wing and shingled siding in the front gable end are suggestive of the Queen Anne style. Many similar houses were identified in the historic resources survey, but few retain their integrity to such a high degree. The earliest known occupants of this house were renters Clyde T. Kendrick, an accountant for the I and GN railroad, and his wife Grace, who lived here as early as 1926. By 1935 the house was owned and occupied by Samuel R. Buchanan, a civil engineer, and his wife Velma. The Buchanans lived here at least through the early 1940s.
