4437 Alton Place, NW

The second house built in 1904, for Samuel Fawcett, was at 4437 Alton Place. 

Fawcett was a carpenter employed by John Simpson & Sons, the company listed on the permit as builder.  This house looks quite different from others on the block, largely due to its roof style. 

Fawcett was in his mid-thirties when he and his family moved into the house.  The Fawcetts owned the house for sixty-six years.
