J. Alexis Lemort House

House. Contributing, 1917.
One-and-one-half-story bungalow with a pyramidal roof and porch which wraps around two sides of the house. Front gable dormers, original weatherboard siding. Porch details include paired square columns on solid balustrade, and stone cheekwalls on entry steps. One-over-one and multi-light-over-one windows; multi-light door. A portion of the porch on the northwest has been enclosed as a sunroom with multi-light casement windows. Picket fence. J. Alexis Lemort appears to have been the original owner of this house. Jeanne M. LeMort, widow of J. Alexis, continued to live in the house until at least 1951. House probably built by Sylvester Maxwell.
