Cape Style one and one half story house, ell additions with bay window.
West facing orientation away from street.
One of several homes built by Pike Soap Company as employee housing. Factory located on this street as well. Most likely all of the structures built at the same time by same contractor/builder. Most houses have been altered in some way by an addition. Good example of factory type housing.
Morton Street was once named Green St, then Pike St. before changed to Morton St. This end was also nick-named "Ram Cat Alley" in the old days.
