1920 Kane

The Openshaw-Hutton House
One of only two surviving examples of “I” houses in the neighborhood, this house was built in 1878 by Jesse Openshaw, a carpenter.  The house reflects the transition from the Greek Revival to the Italianate style.  The current two-story porch was added by the second owners, the Huttons, in the early 1900’s. The rear addition on the NE corner (not seen from the street) was originally the belfry for the former church that faced Decatur St behind the house.
