1874 Italianate
Becky and John Yust
We purchased our Italianate home in 1974 from the elderly granddaughter of the original builder; the house was already 100 years old. The family had not done any major upgrades since the 1930s, so we knew that we would be taking on a life-long project. We have finally completed the last of them: the front and back porches. The front porch includes a new flat-shingled roof, new columns, new turned spindles, new stone piers, and a rebuilt base. The back porch was rebuilt using the original columns and spindles, and has new steps and hand-wrought railings. Visitors are welcome inside the house to view the copper roof on the front porch.
