late 1930s
Two-story, brick Colonial Revival of front-gabled side-hall Federal-style, with pedimented entrance portico, several three-part windows, eight-over-eight window sash with large concrete lintels and Flemish bond brick veneer. Built for Pearl Fishel, a public school teacher.

The house appears unaltered from the 1993 survey. It is two bays wide and triple-pile with eight-over-eight wood-sash windows throughout with the exception of two tripartite windows on the first and third-story levels of the façade, eight-over-eight flanked by two-over-two and four-over-eight flanked by one-over-two, respectively. The nine-light-over-four-panel door has a classical surround with fluted pilasters and is sheltered by a one-bay-wide, pedimented porch supported by paneled columns. There is a two-story, gabled wing at the left rear (southeast) and there are several six-light casement windows on the left (east) elevation. County tax records date the building to 1935 and it appears on the 1949 Sanborn map.

In the 2013 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
