Wurtsbaugh House – Byers

J. Thomas Wurtsbaugh, of Hooper-Wurtsbaugh Lumber Co., purchased four adjoining lots here in 1908, and was noted in the 1909-10 City Directory as residing in Arlington Heights, although at an unspecified address. A one-story rectangular block, the house features a deep, continuous porch which projects from the north, east and west elevations. Large gabled dormers project from the north and east sides of the hip roof. The frame house is clad in narrow-milled wood siding and exhibits diamond-patterned window mullions. The porch posts appear to have been replaced and a new door and roof deck have been added, probably when the house was remodeled for use as an office in 1976.
