Summary of Brown article

According to the article “A number of houses in the neighborhoods are identical or almost identical in design, suggesting they were built speculatively”, for example the house at 918 Union Street, which was occupied by machinist Thompson in 1915 lived in a mail oder kit house that featured a front-gambrel roof (Brown, 180). This type of housing was quite common in this area at that time. Along with other design styles such as the Queen Anne, with a Colonial Revival element mixed in. Then lastly the pyramidal roofed cottages and bungalow style housings.
