1236 Sixth Street

Built 1904. This two-story Queen Anne/Colonial revival house was converted to a funeral parlor in 1911, which explains the unusual extension from the house to the sidewalk. The original porch can be seen to have fat pillars supporting it as does the smaller porch on the east side. The pillars supporting the extension are imitations but lack the grace of the originals. The carriage house is still to the rear of the house. A nice corner tower with witch’s hat on top and the segmented stained-glass window on the east side of the second floor illustrate the Queen Anne influence.
