Bridging the design gap between 1920s-1930s-era bungalows and cottages and Ranch Style houses of the mid-1950s were residences such as this “minimal traditional” dwelling. “Min-trads” often retained details common to their pre-war counterparts while including lower rooflines, boxed eaves, and less-dynamic facades. As popular infill houses within both existing suburbs and new, post-war neighborhoods, min-trads became integrated into the fabric of Cottontown when built on previously undeveloped land. This example, built in 1950, speaks to the style that enjoyed a national following during the late 1940s through early 1950s.
