    This house, erected in the 1890's, is unusual for its Gothic Revival style details, such as the pointed arch insets on the dormers and the pointed arch windows on the gable ends. Its construction date is tied to the Sanborn Fire Insurance Rate Maps; the building's address did not appear in the City Directories until 1902.

    The earliest recorded occupant was Ambrose T. and Mayme H. Abbott; Ambrose served as a superintendent of the Rock Island and Pacific Railway later in the decade. Locally significant.
