Large frame hip-roofed bungalow with engaged wraparound porch. Most distinctive features are the shallow broad arches resting on large tapered brick piers that enframe the porch. F.M. Tilley, who developed most of this block, lived here for many years and is believed to have built the house for himself prior to 1920. The 1915 city directory lists him as a farmer (he is said to have farmed part of this block), but by 1921 he was listed as a realtor.
