Weid House – 5th

The Weid House is a wood-framed structure faced in buff brick. In composition, it is a one-story hipped wing which telescopes forward in progressively smaller masses from a two-story wing with jerkinhead roof. The roofs are clad in glazed green tile. A jerkinheaded portico, with roof pierced by twin piers, leads to a full recessed porch which communicates with a walled terrace to the south. Small-paned French doors open onto the terrace. The house was built c. 1920 for Ralph R. Weid, an oil operator, and sold several years later. It has had a number of owners since. The house appears to be eligible for the National Register on the basis of its architectural quality. The accompanying photo was taken in 2007.
