John and Elizabeth Watterworth House

Built in 1903, architects German and Lignell decorated the Watterworth’s American Four Square home with hipped dormers sporting flared eaves, modillions, and pilasters setting o” its three attic windows. John Watterworth — a contractor and partner in the firm of Watterworth & Fee — used his own firm to build the house.

Three years later he moved his family into an almost identical home his company built at 2505 East Second Street. It cost him $1,000 more than the first. The current owners, Wayne H. Jarvis and Debra Waites, enjoy the rich history of their home and other homes recognized by the DPA.
