George Leedham/Sarah Boardman House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


George Leedham/Sarah Boardman House (Douglas Bennett Rental Property), 2119 Garfield Street; 1888; Josiah L. Rice, Architect, of Clinton.The frame house is an excellent Clinton example of the Eastlake Style. Only the awnings on the front façade detract from the historic integrity exhibited in the house. The house has a decorative wood porch, barge boards, and gable treatment consistent with the style. The front porch is especially distinctive as it is festooned with curved brackets, spindles, circular perforations, and other wood ornamental features. The upper-story porch on the south side is also noteworthy.
