Johnson/Huston House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Johnson/Huston House, 500 4th Avenue South; 1871.This fine residence has a wide, overhanging hip roof. A "widow's walk" atop the roof and original front and side porches have been removed. Although of Italianate Style influence, the house appearance is more restrained and refined than that usually associated with the style. The red-hued brickwork is excellently done and creates a humanly scaled and textured setting of warmth and invitation. The house was built for the Johnson family; the Dunns are recorded to have acquired the property in 1886; and, the Huston acquisition was in 1893.
