606 N. Broad Street
The Angelo House is a two-story Craftsman style dwelling with simple but strongly stated details. The house has a truncated hip roof with wood-shingled, hipped dormers, a shallow bay window on the north side, a sun room on the south side, and an upstairs rear sleeping porch. Typical of its period, the front porch has a pedimented entrance bay, groups of tapered wood posts set on brick plinths, and a plain balustrade. The front entrance and the large front windows all have leaded glass transoms.
Michael A. Angelo, of the Angelo Brothers grocery firm, purchased the property in 1916 and immediately thereafter built the house. It was owned by his descendants until 2016.
On the north side of the house is a noncontributing mid-twentieth century one-car cinderblock garage with a gable roof.
