I have a lot of questions about my house, and so far, the historic board downtown has been minimally helpful.
my first question is, what year was my house really built? or designed? or finished? I'm not really sure what the question is, actually. the real estate listing said 1880, the deed says 1860, and another document found by the intern at the historic office said 1905. As much as I want it to be older, I'd believe 1905, simply because of some of the interior details.
I'm thinking the land was purchased in 1860, it was planned or the foundation was dug in 1880, and the finishing touches went on closer to 1900. I believe the back part was added, maybe in 1905?
also, I have been calling it a "queen anne" but I'm not positive it really is...
is it "craftsman"? (doors are all 5-panel, knobs and hinges are stamped patterened metal)
Let's see what any of you guys come up with! :)
