James and Millie G. Millard House - 220 West State

National Register's Architecture Description

It is a 1-story Early Ranch structure built in 1955 and exhibiting a combination of Minimal Traditional (post-war Colonial) and Early Ranch styles in its low hipped roof, extremely narrow eaves, and red striated brick with white/buff mortar. The brick cladding is laid in a running bond pattern except for a decorative brick belt course at the junction with the raised concrete basement foundation wall. Here, the bricks are arranged in a stacked bond pattern with a combination of stretcher and header bricks. The roof is clad in modern asphalt shingles. There have been very few external alterations to the building, and these are limited to replacement of the historical windows in the original openings with modern, vinyl-coated slider windows. Several of the window openings exhibit 1950s scalloped-edge aluminum awnings. A detached contemporary 2-car garage is also present on the property. Together these structures are considered contributing to the district.
