Eitelman House – College

M. A. Eitelman, proprietor of Eitelman & Son Blacksmiths, had this two-story residence built c. 1909. It is constructed of rough-faced concrete blocks which simulate stone. Porch columns punch through the roof where they are integrated into a roof terrace balustrade. The house is significant as an early and impressive local example of concrete block construction, and appears to be eligible for the National Register. The Eitelman House is a contributing resource in the Fairmount-Southside Historic District.
