Evidence of Integrity Location/Materials:

The set-back of this house matches the set-back of the other houses on the street. This style of house matches the general style of the houses in this neighborhood. The style of this house matches the style of the house adjacent to it located at 317 Bunker Hill Street (#3017), with the exception that the house at 317 Bunker Hill Street has Craftsmen style posts instead of Neocolonial Columns on the front porch.

Additions/Alternations to Primary Building:

There is an addition added to the back of the house. Evidence for the addition is that the length of the house goes back further than similar houses on the same street. Other evidence of an addition is that the window on the addition is much smaller than the windows that were already existing on the house before the addition. There are vinyl replacement windows throughout the house. This vinyl siding may be replacement siding since it is difficult to distinguish exactly where the addition begins due to a seamlessness in the vinyl siding (it may have been installed after the addition was built.)
