Changes Description:  The present house replaces an earlier stucco Mediterranean style home (see pictures in TP Historical Society file) which was burned. The new house was built on the old foundations plus additional new ones. According to Sally Stirsman, the river side of the house was all glass on at least 2 floors. She has floor plans (or at least did as she can't find them in 2015). It was designed in 1954 and built in the summer of 1955. 1983 - the Kains built a garage/carport and perhaps made other changes.
