Other Permit Information


COA Info


Historic Info
Based on Sanborn maps, it appears that the house was moved from another location some time after 1948. A 1951 permit for a one-story single-family residence was found in the village building files, but the lot number doesn't match that of the subject house. No moving permit was found.
