Rose Award

Dale and Julie Stevens receive the Historic Preservation Rose Award for their home at 804 S. Fourth St.

The house was built about 1910, and the Stevens have made significant upgrades to the exterior and interior while maintaining its historical character and integrity. They have added many craftsman-made features, including an enclosed front porch and remodeled master bedroom, bath and kitchen. They also took down the old garage and rebuilt it using the original wood and Louden hardware.

May is Historic Preservation month.
