2800 Avenue D – Avenue D

According to tax records, the house at 2800 Avenue D was built about 1910, and undoubtedly the carriage house dates from the same year. The carriage house is an unusual surviving example of this building type. This one and one-half story wood from building is clad in vertical board and batten siding. The cross gable roof has wide, bracketed eaves lined with notched barge boards above the intact hayloft doors. The adjacent house on Avenue D has been remodeled and does not retain sufficient integrity to be listed in this report. The residence and carriage house were constructed for John B. Pope, he sold the property to J.D. Young in 1921. Harry M. Riegle, an oil operator and contractor, owned the building for the longest period, from 1921 to 1955. Since the survey, the carriage house has been remodeled – most of the windows have been covered and has horizontal wood siding.
