Evidence of Integrity Location/Materials:

Windows have been replaced, but replaced with windows that would match the style of the period.
Roof appears to be original, needs to have a bit of work done as the shingles are very weathered.
The vinyl siding appears to be new - possibly replaced after some damage had been done to the original.


Additions/Alternations to Primary Building:

Addition of a side stoop (on the Woodford Façade) evident because the foundation heights of the building and the stoop do not match up.
