Note
Constructed in 1912 for prominent lawyer, businessman, and politician Louis J. Adams, the Adams House is recognized as an outstanding example of a Craftsman Style, which is clearly demonstrated through the building's low-slope roof, wrap-around porch, and the heavy, rustic stylistic cues embodied in the stucco finish, decorative bargeboards, knee bracing, window trim, and substantial porch posts, among other decorative elements. The period interior makes extensive use of dark fir detailing, especially in the coffered ceilings, classically-derived fir columns at the interior of the main entry and heavy molded door and window trim, including wainscoting, baseboards, picture rails, pocket doors, and built-in cabinetry.
