13. John I. Shore House (FY 1533)

127 West End Boulevard
Contributing, ca. 1913

13.2Like many of the smaller houses expressive of the transitional late Victorian-Colonial Revival period in the West End, the Shore House has a steep hip roof with intersecting left front and side gables and a wrap-around porch with Tuscan columns and a plain balustrade.

The one-story frame dwelling has been sheathed with aluminum siding since 1950, but this change has not significantly affected the overall character of the house.

The John I. Shore family owned and occupied the house from 1912 to 1965. (SM, TR, CD)
