2003 Kane

This unique example of a Folk Victorian cottage with both Queen Anne and Eastlake detailing was built in 1888 for Martin Louis and Susie Weber.  They paid $800 to a savings and loan association for labor and materials, and Weber agreed to superintend the construction; they lived in the house until 1905.  In 1890 Martin's cousin Charles J. Weber built a very similar house next door at 2007 Kane.  He paid $1000 to the same association.  After 1905 for the next 100 years 2003 Kane was sometimes owner occupied but generally rented.  An early 20th century storefront wing on the east side of the house facing White has been removed, returning the house to its original footprint, and a 2-story semi-attached addition was built in 2013.
