Moratz House

East Pine Street Historic District

The Moratz House is an outstanding example of the Queen Anne influence that seems to dominate in the East Pine Street Historic District. Constructed in 1891, the residence displays features and detailing that typify the Queen Anne style as it was adapted to small-town America. The conical-roofed turret, polygonal bay, intersecting gables off a centered hip roof, eave dentilation, and shingle detailing featured here are elements of this highly textural style.
