John C. Ryan, Jr. House – 5th

This two-story house is rectangular in plan with sandstone veneer on the ground story and stuccoed with half-timbering above. The cross-gabled roofs are clad in red tile. The entry is set in a two-story gabled bay totally clad in sandstone. A terrace on the south wall is partially covered by a gabled porch. The house was built c. 1928 for John C. Ryan, Jr., who, with his father, was a partner in the John C. Ryan Land Co., developer of Ryan Place. Ryan and his wife, Lucy, lived here; the house was sold following Ryan’s death in 1956. The house appears to be eligible for the National Register for its architectural quality and its association with an individual important in the development of the area.
