Couch-Sanders House – Elizabeth

1021 Elizabeth Boulevard, Couch-Sanders House, c. 1914. The large two-story brick Couch-Sanders House is rectangular in plan with a hipped roof and full porch. A central gabled portico with arched entry flanked by engaged Tuscan columns is visually reinforced by a massive Missionesque dormer. The front terrace extends to the east side of the house where another porch projects. The house was built c. 1914 for Burr W. Couch, president of the Mutual Cotton Oil Company, and sold in 1920 to Robert C. Sanders, an oil entrepreneur. The Couch-Sanders House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
