Main Road, 0431,1887 (Part 2)

Title

Main Road, 0431,1887 (Part 2)

Description

This is Part 2 for this house. The distinguishing feature of the house in Part 2 is the lack of the second story shed roof "bump-out" over the porch.

This has led to discussion as to whether the house in Part 1 and Part 2 is actually two different houses, one of which would be gone today. Most people believe they are the same house, just remodeled to remove the bunp-out. But why? Do you know the answer?
