OHD Notes
The National Register: "Mabel Eastman MacMillan House/First United Church of Christ Parsonage. The 2 story, Georgia Revival was designed by architects Temple and Burrows of Davenport. It is built of hard grey brick with a steeply pitched, multiple hip roofline. There is a 2 story bay on the west half of the north facade, and exterior chimney on the west, a large wooden oriel on the south and a 2 story sun porch on the southwest. The classic entry portico is flat roofed and supported by fluted columns. Because of the hillside construction, the house is 3 stories at the rear with a garage in the basement under the main house. In continuous use as a private residence, in 1953 this house became the personage for the adjacent First United Church of Christ..."

    Wow, this house is virtually unmolested! I just see a teensy bit of “modern” cabinetry in the kitchen but 95% fabulous!

    This lovely home in an equally lovely and historic neighborhood is just up the street from Burlington’s renowned Snake Alley, called by Ripley’s Believe it or Not “The Crookedest Street in the World.” And that includes the not as crooked Lombard Street in San Francisco. Check the street view for a great tour of some well preserved homes. Here are some links to Snake Alley.

    I know exactly where this! My husband’s family is from Burlington and I have driven by there many times. If you look on the street map, on the other side of the church is the entrance to Snake Alley, Burlington’s answer to San Francisco’s Lombard St. This is a beautiful town on the Mighty Mississippi.

    Love the kitchen and all the other built-ins! I have actually driven through this neighborhood and wondered what this house, and a couple others looked like inside.
