Italics from the 2005 National Register Nomination for Forest Hills; not verified for accuracy.

On a 2-acre homestead tract just south of Forestwood Road is a large frame bungalow with 3 early farm outbuildings. The 1 1⁄2-story side-gable house has a door with sidelights, weatherboard siding, 9-over-1 sash windows, and a wraparound shed porch with Craftsman posts. Other features are a large gabled dormer, exposed rafter tails, and interior and interior end chimneys. Summit Drive is not listed in the city directories until after 1960. Prior to this, the street was apparently named Cole Rd., and houses are not numbered. In 1958, Edgar W. Cole was owner-occupant of the house at 2123 Cole Rd., which is apparently this house.
