Description 

"A pair of two-story bay windows with granite sills, decorative brickwork, corbelled cornice, and open front porch recall the prosperous Courthouse Square neighborhood during the 1880s and 1890s. This attractive brick Italianate style dwelling, constructed in 1890, originally accommodated two families and helped ease the growing neighborhood’s housing shortage. Its location near the courthouse was convenient for the Honorable Henry N. Blake, an attorney and district court judge, who was one of the first tenants. Although its original back porch has been removed, the distinguished residence is one of the district’s best examples of the Italianate style urban row house." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society plaque
