Russell and Frances Cooke House

2800 Chelsea Circle, ca. 1951, ca. 1980, ca. 2009, Contributing Building

An otherwise modest one-and-a-half-story brick Cape Cod house is stretched with side wings; two gabled dormer windows; 6/6 sash throughout the house; gabled, glass-enclosed breezeway at the west gable end leads to an original front-gabled garage with weatherboards in the gable end and board-andbatten siding elsewhere, 6/6 sash, a square ventilator at the roof ridge, and an entrance at the rear elevation; later single-story two-car garage addition at the east gable end of the house has aluminum siding and 6/6 sash. The house first appears in the 1951 city directory, which also lists Russell Cooke Jr. as an officer and comptroller of the Wright Machinery Company at 1005 Calvin Street northeast of downtown.

The structure was extensively renovated in the early 2000's but retained its footprint and general appearance.
