Nicholas Johannes House

36 S Davis Street, Helena, MT

Description 

"The residence that stood on this lot prior to the 1880s was likely central to remodelings and additions made between 1882 and 1890 during the South-Central neighborhood’s building boom. Nicholas Johannes, a German immigrant and carpenter by trade, purchased the home in 1882 and displayed his skill by twice expanding its basic rectangle to form a “T.” An open porch originally spanned the front, and a later porch extension (now enclosed) wrapped around the south side. Although the two-story frame home is now clad in stucco, its gable-front roof, simple cornice, and lovely front door recall the home’s nineteenth-century origins." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society plaque
