In the early 1900s (approximately 1915 for this house) several of these cottages were built on Leonard Place. In form, they were built as a Queen Anne Cottage, but are unusual because the builder added a Craftsman style porch. The Queen Anne Cottage evolved from the Queen Anne style, and is a builder form of that style. It is usually one story tall with the hip and gable roof, corbeled interior chimneys and sawn wood ornamentation that is typical of the more elaborate two-story Queen Anne residences. The wood attic vent and partial cornice returns are typical of Queen Anne Cottage design. The Craftsman style front porch, which is much simpler in style than those of the Queen Anne era, usually shows the balustrade and posts on piers typical of Craftsman houses.
