Original Description (From Book)
Originally identical to its neighbor 604, this house has a handsome Ionic porch substituted for its original jigsaw porch. Well-preserved, the only sign of age is the substitution of a wood block for an Ionic capital.
Original Note (From Book)
600 Block of North First Street - This is one of the most consistent blocks in Jackson Ward. Built in the last decades of the nineteenth century, this block contains smaller homes than on Leigh or Clay Streets. These are more easily used by modern families than the larger houses on other blocks.
