Trip 87: Another Four North Side Houses

Date: January 22, 2011
Trip: 87
Landmarks Visited: 4
Landmarks To-Date: 228
Landmarks Remaining: 125

On a very cold Saturday afternoon I drove to see four more houses on the north side. The biggest challenge of the day was very icy sidewalks. The streets were fine, but the sidewalks were dangerous.

1. Jackson-Thomas House

2. Charles N. Loucks House
This house is currently for sale. It would definitely make a unique home with a three story tower, a brick facade on the first floor with wood shingles above, and what looks to be the original garage.

3. John and Clara Merchant House

4. Dr. Philip Weintraub House

This house is definitely an example of the International Style. Given the lack of ornamentation and the flat roof, it's difficult to tell from the street whether it is a home or a commercial building. It also makes the building somewhat timeless--it's difficult to determine its age just from looking at the structure. (It was built in 1940-41.)
One feature that surprised me is the slightly whimsical porthole window near the main entrance.
