Hewatt House – Avenue B

This one and one-half story wood frame, rectangular plan house has a gable roof above a full shed-roofed front porch supported by Tuscan columns. Gabled bays on the east and west elevations intersect the front gable. According to tax records, the house was built about 1907 for Susie I. Hewatt, widow of John Hewatt. Mrs. Hewatt operated a dressmaking shop out of her home during the 1930s and 40s. The house was remodeled in 1931 to accommodate the “Hewatt School of Expression” operated by Mrs. Hewatt’s daughter, Clarice. The house remained in the Hewatt family until 1991.
