Oscar Klein House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Oscar Klein House (St. John's Episcopal Church parsonage). 503 5th Avenue South; 1918.A two-story brick house with stone trim, it has a broad, overhanging hip roof. The building has an enclosed one-story "sun porch" on the east and an entry porch with flanking brick piers on the north. The design of the building was obviously influenced by the Prairie School Style movement. This influence is exhibited by the general building massing, grouping of windows, the strong horizontal lines defined by the hip roof eave lines, and the stone string course at the line of the second-floor window sills. Concessions to traditional design include the use of double-hung windows and chimney set to the side, instead of centralized position.
