19. The Coffee Block - 455 Chadron avenue
At the south end of the block is the house that Elizabeth Coffee moved into in 1900. She lived there with her four children: Harry, Guy (Chick), Edna, and Rex. Mrs. Coffee died in 1938 and her son Rex and his wife Ermine moved into the house.
The home is still occupied by members of the Coffee family. Built as a one-story house originally, the subsequent additions render this house a dominating structure on this historic residential block. The unusual large double-storied porch sprawls asymmetrically northward from the pedimented two-storied colonial portion. Its corners are marked by narrow pilasters and capitals that intersect with a cornice that is at once the horizontal base of the pediment.
