The East Side Historic District: A Walking Tour
Park Street & Henry Street


1190 park street

Christian and Mattie Hanson

Like the Skau House at 117 S. Academy St., this building has a steep gable roof and an L-shaped plan. These features are typical of the simple houses called “gabled ells. This house was built almost twenty years later than the Skau House, showing the persistence of this popular building type.


120 henry street

Evan K. and Anna Midtbon

The 1997 National Register nomination study for the East Side Historic District noted that this handsome Queen Anne house also had elements of the Colonial Revival and American Foursquare styles. The wide overhanging eaves of the main roof and dormers are of note, as are the full length front porch and columned side porch.

The Midtbons owned this house until the 1940s and their daughter Selida was the next owner. Selida, who worked at the First National Bank for many years, lived here until 1981, when the house was sold to Fred and Lorraine Ingersoll, the present owners.
