Paul and Elsie Stahl House

Designed by local architect G Milton Small, a student of Mies van der Rohe, the Stahl House is an excellent example of a Contemporary Ranch style residence, as evidenced by its low-slung gable roof, post-and-beam construction, window walls, open floor plan, and integrated carport. Unlike other structures designed by Small, the home uses wood and stone, resulting in a softer, more organic iteration of Modernism. Its high architectural integrity is the result of continuous family ownership.

Date: 1956
