Fred Van Allen House (Halsrud Apartments), 844 5th Avenue South; 1911; John Morrell & Son, Architects, of Clinton.A large, three-story house, it has exterior materials of stucco, wood trim, and tile-clad hip roof. The house has been converted in six apartment units; however, the exterior is much the same as originally built, except for the addition of aluminum storm windows. The handsome house has suggestions of the Renaissance Revival Style with the use of symmetry and compositional massing; however, the architectural features, materials, and detailing are simplified in the modern approach of the Prairie School Style.
