Staley/Schlesinger, 1195 Summer Street NE, (LL)

This 1918 transitional box frame residence was  owned by W. I Staley and was located on Summer Street in Piety Hill. He was the owner and Principal of Capitol Business College.
By 1940-41, the house was moved north to its present location on Summer Street at the intersection with Market Street.
The occupant in the next years was Max Schlesinger.
The house is two and a half stories tall with central chimney, weather boarding, shutter windows and full basement. In spite of its location on a busy corner of Market and Summer Streets, the grounds and house maintain their original character of dignity befitting that prestigious residential neighborhood.
