The outer end of the porch's roof breaks to form a low pediment on each side face. Three thin columns support the porch lintel and are connected by widely spaced balusters. The porch (a 1930 reconstruction, using older pieces?) shelters a fixed-pane, transom window and an entrance next to a small, square multi-light window immediately above the porch's access stairs are located.

    Historic Features: Gables with shingling and stick work, side gable roof extensions to the front porch, diamond panes upper window sashes; two story Gable-Ell on east elevation, chimney stack on west elevation.
