William S. Gunn House
“Jefferson and Island. Built 1876-77 (authority: City Directory) 29 Jefferson Ave.” Substantial residence of light-colored brick, with molded trim above three sash windows on 2nd floor. There is a square cupola on the roof with two windows on each side. A large porch wraps around the front and left side of the main floor, with wooden pillars and railings and lattice work underneath. Two carpenters are standing on the front walk, working on a curved piece of wood propped up on a sawhorse table. A low cement wall surrounds the yard, and there is a short cement hitching post with a ring on top out by the street. Some unidentified buildings can be seen next to the house.
