Felix M. Whitaker House – c. 1925

This one-story, hip-roofed house is three-bays wide and triple pile. It has an engaged front porch, similar to 814 Wilkerson, supported by tapered wood posts on painted brick piers with an original wood railing. A hip-roofed front dormer has a pair of replacement windows. The house retains original molded wood weatherboards, a standing-seam metal roof, and nine-over-one wood windows throughout. The front door is a fifteen-light French door with matching ten-light sidelight. The earliest known occupant of the house is Felix M. Whitaker (bookkeeper, Fidelity Bank) in 1925.

Shed, c. 1925 – One-story, side-gabled shed features molded wood weatherboards and a standing-seam metal roof with exposed eaves.
