William B. Smith bought this lot for $350 in 1889. This vernacular house was built after 1890 and has shingle style elements. These include a variety of wall treatments, such as imbricated, horizontal, and undulated siding, and carved wood panels. The prominent front gable contains a sunburst motif, and covers a recessed porch. William Smith was a painter and paper hanger. The 1900 census lists Smith, his wife Agnes, and two children living here. By 1920, the house was owned by William Brown, a painting contractor, who lived there with his wife and two daughters.
