619 Summit Street
This two-story, weatherboarded frame, Colonial Revival house is one of several in the West End to use the gambrel roof form. In addition it has a shed dormer across the facade, a pent eave between stories, and a front entrance with a fanlight transom and a gabled hood instead of a porch. The Sanborn Maps suggest that there was originally an engaged porch on the northwest corner of the house, but this has been sensitively enclosed.
The house was first owned, and occupied for more than fifteen years, by William G. and Hallie Tennille. He was manager of the Robert E. Lee Hotel. (TR, CD, SH)
