    Looks like another Radford design. Check out Oklahoma Houses by Mail’s post showing the plan and similar homes.

    Taylorville must have been a prosperous community around the turn of the last century and fertile marketing ground for plan book architects. After conducting an impromptu streetview tour, I quickly found what I believe are two J.H. Daverman (Grand Rapids, MI) designs: https://goo.gl/maps/a6SphBKQtRG2 and https://goo.gl/maps/v1TpESEVmmy A more methodical search could likely turn up more examples from published house plans.
    The fine Classical Revival millwork presented in this particular house was a pleasant surprise. Anyone have an idea about the doorway in photo No. 10 from the bottom? It looks like it was almost never used. Perhaps the doors go out to a balcony porch upstairs.

    William A. Radford was a prolific Chicago based architect with several plan books from the early 1900’s that were very popular. (original plan book copies can be found and accessed from Online sources like the Internet Archive and Google Books) This example seems to be fairly intact and original based on the photos. Taylorville is located in central Illinois not far from the larger cities of Decatur and Springfield.
