House – Clinton

Similar to many sites in the North Side residential neighborhoods west of N. Main Street, ownership of this parcel changed frequently in the pre-World War I period. The first identified tenant of this house was Dewitt O. Lewis, a chief engineer and fireman at Armour & Co. The wood-framed, central hipped block with front projecting gabled bay is flanked on the south by a half porch. The classic vernacular form is clad in narrow-milled siding, while variegated shingles ornament the gable end.
