H. O. Inscoe House. Large 1 and 1/2-story side-gabled bungalow with 4-over-1 vertical sash windows and an engaged porch. Alterations include all-over vinyl and the enclosure of the porch. A brick stoop with metal posts and awning have been added to the entrance. 1930 CD: H. Ozer Inscoe occupant (Inscoe Grocery, 909 E. Main St.). 1937 SM.

C. Shed. Ca. 1950. Shed- roof shed with German siding, awning have been added to the entrance. 

Howard Ozer (H.O.) Inscoe and his wife Lettie Oney Long Inscoe lived in this home from the year they were married, 1921, until the late 1930s. H.O. owned a grocery store and meat market with his brother Genada (aka Jenadus) Inscoe. The grocery store was located at 1028 Holloway Street. The meat market was in a home at 919 Angier Avenue, which is no longer standing. Coincidentally, that meat market on Angier was the childhood home of Dr. Norman Spikes who lived one block up from the Inscoes at 601 North Hyde Park Avenue.  Howard Inscoe Jr, who grew up in this home, died while serving his country in WWII.  Lettie, H.O.'s wife, died of Pick's Disease (a form of dementia) according to her death certificate.
