114-2nd Street SW, Carman

This house is an example of the kind of large and important buildings that the social and economic elite of Carman built for themselves in the early 20th century. Joseph and Ada McGill lived here from 1890–1910. Later it was home for T.A. Johnson, his wife Evadine and their family. Johnson served as Agricultural Representative from 1930–1946.

The building is a significant example of modest Queen Anne design and craftsmanship, with its sturdy brick walls, complex and dramatic roof shape, and numerous and expertly crafted features and details. The Johnson House is one of the five key buildings that help make the block of 2nd Street SW between 2nd and 3rd avenues such a notable area–packed with fine brick houses that proudly express the architectural ambitions of their owners, and of the Town of Carman at its height.
