631 Summit Street
Contributing, ca. 1911


The Adams-Hines House is a simple, two-story frame, Colonial Revival dwelling with a hip roof, left front projecting bay with pedimented gable, and a hip-roofed front porch with Tuscan columns and a plain balustrade. The house is nearly identical to 623 Summit Street (114). During mid-century it was covered with asbestos shingles, but its form and simple detailing still make a positive contribution to the architecture of the street and neighborhood.

A variety of occupants were listed in the city directories at this location between 1912 and 1918, but in 1918 Jesse J. and Fannie Adams and Harvey H. and Julia Adams Hines were residing here. The Adams-Hines family owned the house until 1959. (CD, TR, SH)
