Roberts, 815 Shipping Street NE, (D)

This house was built in 1900, but original owner is unknown. It was the home of Clifford M. Roberts and his wife Maude in 1932. He was a grocer with a store at 790 D Street. In 1948, Mrs. Roberts is listed at this address and the family name continues there until 1957. Later owners renovated the front of the house in the 1970s, constructing the porch as it is now. Leaves kept blowing onto the wet cement flooring and their imprint can still be seen today.
