Description:

This rectangular (79′ x 52′) structure is constructed of uncut native stone of buff and auburn colors in a masonry of random rubble. The roof is gabled. The windows are singly placed. New doors and metal encased windows have been installed. One of the garage openings has been filled in with concrete. Concrete additions have been built onto the north and south sides of the structure. These alterations do not impeach the integrity of the building.
This WPA project brought desperately needed jobs to the unemployed workers of Chouteau and infused wages of many man-hours of labor into the local economy. It enhanced the operation of city government and increased moral among the people. Architecturally, it is unique in Chouteau in terms of style, type, scale, materials, and workmanship.[1]

VERBAL BOUNDARY DESCRIPTION: Lot 5, Block 16 original town.
