GEORGE AND MATTIE SCHMIDT HOUSE - 901 N. SYCAMORE (LOOK LEFT) BUILT 1905 TWO AND A HALF STORY QUEEN ANNE
This home was built around 1905 and is a late example of the Queen Anne style. It has retained its historical character and integrity to a large degree. Carved wood detailing of the jigsaw brackets on the porch are unusual details. Also notice the squared porch posts. This was one of the last homes built in the Queen Anne style as the popularity of this style waned and the Craftsman bungalow began to wax. Mr. Schmidt was a blacksmith for I&GN railroad and later the owner of the George Schmidt Hardware.
