   gable and on the first floor with simple window surrounds and block trim. The brick foundation is
   exposed on three side and with the slop of the land forms a full story walkout basement. The
   porches were originally Queen Anne turned posts with cut spindle work. The porches under the
   principle roof are unusual.

History of Mark:
"Based on city directory research, this house was built between 1891 and 1906. The plaque in the front yard states that Joseph H. and Philomena Nacke resided here from 1904 until the start of World War I. The plaque also states that from 1918-1924 the occupants were Louis and Anna Hallemeier, and he was employed by the American Car and Foundry Co. The three houses at 709, 713 and 717 North Sixth Street were originally nearly identical.

"A public sidewalk spans the front of this narrow 35’x150’ lot, which slopes significantly toward the rear. A brick sidewalk leads from the street to the gallery, where it connects to a concrete stairway leading down the south side of the house. A landscape bed is along the front of the house. There are no outbuildings." ~ St. Charles Historic Survey  Phase IV, PDF pages 261-264
