Becker House – Henderson

The Becker House is a two-story wood-framed structure with clapboard siding. The composition is dominated by a flaring gabled roof which extends forward to cover a full porch. An over-scaled gabled dormer with recessed balcony is over the porch. The house has several eccentric details, including small gables which cantilever from each end of the roof, and an awkwardly scaled stairwell bay. Built c. 1906, the house went through a succession of owners until purchased by Mrs. M. G. Becker in 1918, a widow who rented out furnished rooms through about 1945. The Becker House has been demolished.
