This elaborate one-and-one-half story frame bungalow nicely illustrates the three architectural styles that characterize the early North Main Street houses. Its bungalow styling is evident from the house’s steep gable end roof with flared eaves, its front dormer and its contrasting stucco and shingled siding. The Tuscan columns on the porch add a Colonial Revival touch to the house while the projecting bay is late Victorian. The interior reflects the same mix of styles.
Easily the most charming house on the block, the Davis-Wilhelm-McDaniel House was built by A.E. Davis around 1910. By 1920, Adolphus Wilhelm, a bookkeeper for the railroad and his wife Minnie owned it until the crash of 1929. Its current owner has added an artistic flair to the cottage.
