The Hevener House is the most intact of the 1880s houses on Sixth Street with a splendid porch, foliate ornament and gouged bracket-work. Architect Augustus Gauger gave the design a splendidly detailed facade, combining the latest Queen Anne filigree with touches of the old bracketed style that he could never quite give up. The Queen Anne style originated in England in the late 1860s. This picturesque style mixes Medieval, Elizabethan and Jacobean elements in asymmetrical collections of architectural details. The use of highly ornate spindlework was an American interpretation of the style popularized by the distribution of precut architectural elements through the expanding railway system. The style maintained popularity from 1880-1910.

An interesting note is that this home originally had a 2nd floor rounded turret protruding from the right side of the house topped with a witch’s cap. This was clearly removed at one point.
