40. Apartment Building (FY 1552)

168-174 West End Boulevard
Contributing, ca. 1920’s

This is one of several good examples of the Craftsman style utilized for apartment buildings in the West End. It is a nearly square two-story frame building with asbestos shingle siding, a low hip roof with widely overhanging eaves and a matching front dormer, and two hip-roofed front porches with tapered wood posts set on brick plinths and a shingled balustrade. A stone retaining wall separates the front yard from the street.
