Neal-Gorman House – Pershing

W. P. Neal recorded a mechanic’s lien for a dwelling house on this property in 1922, the day after Mrs. Maude Neal, widow of Edgar Neal, had purchased the property. Jessie J. and Maude Neal Gorman resided in the house from about 1923; Gorman was employed by the Southwestern Land Co. The large, two-story frame house has Prairiesque enclosed eaves under its hip roof. A full porch extends across the front elevation supported by brick piers. The residence has undergone a number of alterations, including the application of asbestos siding, the painting of the brick surfaces, and the enclosing of one porch bay.
