444 Laurel Avenue
Built in 1900-01, #444 is a 3,209-square-foot, 2.5-story brick single-family residential structure, which best exemplifies the American Foursquare style. 444 Laurel Avenue is located within Highland Park’s 1999 Central East survey area, and was determined to be of
“Significant” status. In 1999, the integrity of the Structure was “unaltered”, with reference to aluminum soffits.
The survey notes significant features as: gable roof dormers with casements; side oriel;
overhanging eaves with dentil and cornice board; segmental arched windows throughout; full front porch with columns and offset entry and balustrade. The house was described as square shaped with a pyramidal asphalt shingle roof and window types including wood double hung and
awning. Since then, the Structure has undergone an enclosed room addition with porch (deck), and a new detached garage replacement.
