The expansive 1 ½-story cottage has 3-bay dormers across front and rear. The sweeping porch roof projects at the corners of front porch in unusual fashion. Built by Mr. Twine for Frank Wood and his daughter Rebecca Wood (Drane) in 1923. It contains the date 1926. Mrs. Drane recalled that “it was Papa’s idea” to have the corners project to provide additional shade from the sun. Source: Drane interview.
