    This house is representative of the small wood frame structures erected in Colorado Springs by the middle and working class families in the late Victorian period. Built before 1901, it displays an asymmetrical composition with decorative shingles, cornice with dentil molding, narrow lap siding, double-hung sash windows with architrave lintel trim, and a porch with turned spindle supports, frieze and balustrade.

    The earliest known resident was Albert N. Wood, a millworker with the Hassell Iron Works Company. Locally significant.
