    This is one of my favorites in FH in part because it's almost like two houses in 1. Do we know if both facades are original? I've always imagined the Arnette-facing colonial facade was added.

Otto W. Moss House. 2-story front-gabled Colonial Revival-style house with weatherboard, 6-over-1 sash windows, and a full portico with paneled posts and a balcony with cast-iron brackets and railing. A French door opens onto the portico. Beside the door are a triple set of 4-over-4 sash windows with paneled aprons. The north side elevation, facing Wells St., has another entrance with sidelights and a gabled entrance porch with columns. A pent roof runs along this elevation. A fieldstone retaining wall and wide stone steps lines the Arnette Avenue frontage. Otto W. Moss, president of Moss’s Bakery, was the owner-occupant in 1935.
