657 PARK STREET
657 Park Street was built in 1915 for Louis and Martha Brandes right before the United States became deeply involved in WWI. Louis Brandes was a German immigrant and worked at the Stove and Oven Company for 25 years. He passed away in 1950. His wife continued to live in the home until selling it in 1955.
657 Park Street is an excellent example of a Craftsman Style Bungalow. Typical of this style and found on this home is its wide eaves, low pitched, hipped roof, full width porch (now enclosed), multi-light windows and hipped dormers found on three sides of the home. There is a large addition that was made to the back of the house.
