The Dutch gambrel (ridged roof having two slopes on each side, the lower slope having the steeper pitch) roof has
a slight Dutch kick (flare), and with a pentroof at its base, gives distinction to this house.
A further interest is its recessed porch topped by a shallow pediment. This is a large two and a half-story, New England-style Colonial house.
16. 540 Main Street
The house at 540 Main Street is a unique design for Chadron. It represents an Oriental design with metal shingles.
The house is a stucco building with an arched entryway and windows.
This home was said to have been designed by a student architect of Frank Lloyd Wright. The property was purchased by Benjamin F. Pittman, a Chadron attorney, in 1907 through a tax deed. In 1923 the house was built by the Pittmans. This house has seen many owners but remains unchanged through out its 80 years on the corner of Main and 6th Streets.
